“Because it is cheaper, Croatians living close to the Bosnian border are crossing over to fill up their tanks and do their shopping. Claiming tax refund on the way back makes the trip even more worth it.

A significant number of residents of Imotski in Croatia buy their groceries in Posusje in Bosnia, particularly on weekends. Sometimes they cross the border to go out for dinner.” (N1)
