Data from the price watching website pricer.lt shows the price of diesel rose by 19 cents (10.9 percent) to 1.978 euros per liter in June, compared to May, and the diesel fuel was more expensive by 85 cents (74.7 percent) than a year ago. The price of the A95 petrol rose by 25 cents and 82 cents respectively to 2.066 euros.

Fuel prices are one of the main reasons for high inflation in Lithuania.

45.1 percent of respondents said that rising fuel prices were changing their daily life habits, such as using public transport more often and limiting unnecessary travel. That was often the case for people living in smaller towns and villages (46-54 percent), workers (56.5 percent) and people with an income of up to 350 euros per month for one family member (54 percent).

"In rural areas, people have been cooperating for a long time as co-workers often share the same car to go to work, and there was even no need for such prices for that. I would say this trend remains as it's problematic to drive alone, you have to calculate," Vidas Sukys, the executive director of the Union of Lithuanian Fuel Stations, told BNS.

The results also show that rising fuel prices have had the lowest impact on the residents of Vilnius and other major cities, aged 30-39 years and having higher education in the services and technical areas, as 34-39.5 percent of them said they had not changed their habits because of this reason.

Vilmorus carried out the survey of 1,003 adults in 27 cities and 40 villages on June 9-18 with live and telephone interviews. The maximum margin of error for the survey is 10 percent.
