Thanks PPF! Very interesting...Is it retail that dominant that the prices tend to pick up strongly only after 12-14 o'clock? But then on Sundays there is hardly any peak. Or majority of the business starts their working days only after 11? I am in manufacturing and we start around 9, but manufacturing is ca 20% of GDP and 4 next top contributors (ca 60%) are more office (->aircon) based so this may explain the trends.

Difficult to say, and this year is probably a bit special due to remote working still being the norm. But kids come back home from school and home aircons go on, etc. So the demand peaks might be very short as it seems. But not important enough to change behaviour as most don't have that pricing model in their bill.
