Fuel prices are rising again. After a few weeks of lull and the break in the presidential election, pump prices have been on an upward trend since mid-April and are nearing the symbolic two-euro mark again.

The 2 euro bar is approaching (again)

At the last count of the Ministry of Ecological Transition (Friday, May 6) the average price per liter of diesel was 1.94 euros (+6.2 cents compared to the previous week) and that of SP95 1.82 euros (+6 , 1 centime compared to the previous week).

Already, this Wednesday, May 11, the price of diesel, SP95 and SP98 is above two euros a liter in some Parisian gas stations. Taking a step back from the curve of September 2021, it can be seen that diesel has reached its highest on March 11 (2.14 euros), as well as for the Super SP-95-E10 ( 2.03 euros).

After a second painting around March 25, prices for both fuels then fell until April 15, with 1.8 euros for diesel and 1.7 euros for SP95, respectively. It is from this date, or about three weeks, that the trend is upward.

What is worrying is that this rise in prices is taking place despite the rebate granted by the government: since April 1, the government has set up a rebate of 18 cents including tax per liter at the pump. At present, the actual prices, without aid, must in principle be close to 2.10 euros for diesel, which is very close to its highest recorded.


Why do you find yourself?

This revival of the gasoline grade can be explained by at least two reasons. First, the price of gasoline at the pump naturally follows that of the barrel of crude oil. At its peak on March 11, the barrel was trading at 111 euros, which is very close to the price of the day, which is around 105 euros.

In recent days, another threat has weighed on prices: that ofEuropean embargo on Russian oil. At present, the 27 naked have still managed to agree on a sixth package of sanctions, due to opposition from countries heavily dependent on Russian hydrocarbons (notably Hungary).

However, the agreement, which seems close, is anticipated by the markets, which are betting on a scarcity of supply and therefore a rise in prices (Russia is the second largest producer in the world, with about ten million barrels per day).

Fuel price inflation is therefore set to continue, then the 18-cent rebate is due to end on July 31. For the replacement, the renewed government is already thinking about a new tariff assistance, but which would be more targeted.

What help after the rebate?

According to The Tribuneit could be a check or tax credit, but distributed only to households that need it most (modest incomes or many miles to work). All the work in progress in Bercy consists of the outline identifier of the future households concerned.

In the meantime, it remains to convert its vehicle to E85 superethanol, whose price per liter is around 0.80 cents at the beginning of May. Switching to electricity (the cost of which is increasingly also displayed at the station) can also be a solution.

Noi am recently demonstrated a record for the least fuel-efficient vehicles in the market to facilitate fuel economy. And, on a daily basis, you can also use several mobile applications or sites that list the cheapest stations: Gas Buddy, Fuel flash, Essence & Co, Zagaz, Cheaper fuel, etc.
