Dear Sirs and Madames,
As you know from the trade press and from your own experience, we have been confronted with dramatic price developments for fuel for some time; the supply situation is also very tense.
In addition, due to numerous force majeure reports, there is a severe restriction in fuel availability, which makes the price situation even worse, not to say escalate.
Unfortunately, at the moment it looks like this exceptional situation will last for a few more weeks/months and may even worsen.
We are forced to react to this extraordinary situation. Please understand that we also have to adjust the prices to the current situation.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this situation outside of our control and appreciate your patience and trust.
