According to a statement released by the company in Plock, central Poland, wholesale prices for its Superplus 98 unleaded petrol will rise by 12 zloty (2.9 euros) per thousand litres.
Meanwhile, the price of diesel will rise by 9 zloty (2.1 euro) per thousand litres.
Petrol stations will adjust the ultimate retail price, with costs unlikely to go beyond an increase of 1 grosz (0.002 euro) per litre.
PKN Orlen, which also operates in the Czech Republic, Germany and across the Baltic states, is among the largest oil companies in Europe.
The current rise marks the eighth hike in petrol prices this year by the company, and the eleventh in diesel. Petrol prices have dipped five times while those of diesel have fallen once. (nh)
