The tax cut on fuel prices largely fizzled out in view of the Pentecost weekend, but the Trigema gas stations in Rangendingen, Burladingen and Altshausen are struggling with completely different things.

We ask for your understanding!” Trigema said.

The textile manufacturer from Burladingen did not provide any information on how exactly the delivery bottlenecks are noticeable. Nor was it explained whether the fuel pumps were really broken or simply ran out of fuel.
On Saturday morning, our editorial team asked Trigema for an opinion and to clarify the consequences of the delivery bottlenecks. We report after…
