Fuel: taxes will not drop despite rising prices

The government has confirmed that fuel taxes will not drop, despite the insane increase for several months.

It is a request that the French, associations for the defense of motorists as well as certain MPs have been making for months, while the price of fuel is at its highest. And for good reason, if the taxes on the liter of petrol and diesel have always caused a lot of ink to flow, the situation has greatly worsened in one year, when prices have literally soared due to the war in Ukraine. With a liter currently exceeding two euros, whether unleaded or diesel, the situation is indeed very tense for motorists, especially those who are forced to take their car every day. But if the government has granted a small discount as well as some measures, the reduction in taxation and taxes, which represent 60% of the price of a liter is not yet relevant.

No drop

This was once again confirmed by the government, in response to a question posed last year by the member Marie Tamarelle-Verhaeghe (The Republic on the March). She had questioned the elected officials, asking then ” while the price of gasoline in France is subject to significant state taxation, [Marie Tamarelle-Verhaeghe] wishes to know the measures envisaged by the Government to cushion the increase in the price of fuel, which according to the experts should not decline for several months

“. And the answer, which has just come in, is clear: “the Government does not currently plan any major changes to the terms of this system”. Understand, no tax reduction is planned.

More targeted aid

On the other hand, the government returns to the discount of 18 centimes on fuel, stating that “the Prime Minister has announced several measures intended to protect the French against soaring energy prices, in particular the revaluation of the energy check, the tariff shield and a new indemnity exceptional”. This should be extended but will be more targeted, especially for large riders.
