the Fuel prices keep increasing. In the meantime, they have reached their highest values since 2012, the most expensive tank year to date, according to ADAC figures on Wednesday. Accordingly, Super E10 cost a nationwide average of 1.647 euros per liter on Tuesday – 3.8 cents more than a week earlier. For diesel it was 1.526 euros per liter – an increase of 4.8 cents.
This means that diesel is only 2.8 cents short of the all-time high of August 2012. With Super E10, the gap to the all-time high of 6.2 cents is slightly higher – it was reached in September 2012. The most important drivers are the oil prices, which were recently in the region of multi-year highs. In addition, diesel often also picks up in autumn because of the heating oil season.
ADAC: load limit reached
ADAC traffic president Gerhard Hillebrand appealed to the future governing parties “to refrain from any thought games about a faster increase in the CO2 price”. People with lower incomes should also be able to stay mobile. The costs reached a limit for many people. At the same time, there was a lack of inexpensive alternatives, especially in rural areas. Hillebrand called for an increase in the flat-rate fee. It has long since ceased to cover the actual car costs. (dpa-AFX / gem)
