While the German government is lowering fuel taxes, would such a measure be possible in France?
As you know, the price of fuel continues to climb, while petrol and diesel are currently well above the two euro per liter mark. An untenable situation for many motorists, who are sometimes forced to cut back on other personal expenses or reduce their trips and their leisure activities. And this should not go on improving, in particular because of the embargo put in place by the European Union concerning Russian oil, further driving up the price. And the small discount of 18 cents, put in place by the government since April 1, does not really change the situation, it being considered insufficient. What the French need above all is a lower taxeswhich represent 60% of the price per litre.
The government has confirmed that fuel taxes will not drop, despite the insane increase for several months. https://t.co/1IvSk93fg5

If the government refuses to accede to this request, it is not really the same thing in Germany. Indeed, since June 1, our neighbors have applied a reduction in fuel taxes, allowing prices to fall by 30 to 35 cents for gasoline and 14 to 17 cents for diesel. A measure also supplemented by a new offer at €9 per month allowing you to travel by public transport.

If the Germans are therefore quite capable oflower fuel taxes, why not France? For now, the government still refuses to make a move, as confirmed by a response given to a member a few days ago ” the Government does not currently foresee any major changes to the terms of this system [des taxes] “. Unfortunately, a reduction in taxation is absolutely not on the agenda for the moment, despite the exorbitant fuel prices.
While the French pay their fuel at €2 a liter and have to sacrifice other expenses in order to be able to travel, the Total company is making record profits never before achieved in the entire history of the industry. Yes, we will lock the prices down. #ThisYou pic.twitter.com/udlSR1JP6j
