[Timor-Leste] The process of refueling

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

Buying fuel in bottles from stalls along the roads is not an uncommon sight – I’ve seen this in most undevelopment countries before. During my trip to Timor-Leste, we had to buy fuel from such bottles along the roads or refuel at a local gas station (not your usual Esso, Shell or Caltex station we have in Singapore). For a nation rich in oil and gas, the price of fuel there, on average, is between US$ 1.30 to US$ 1.60 for 1 litre.

 

Here’s one of our visits to the gas station:
