Fuel: why are prices rising again?

In recent days, the price of fuel has risen sharply. Discover the reason behind this new and sudden increase.

While fuel was very expensive at the beginning of last year and during the summer, the situation had improved markedly during the month of September. Rather logical, while the government had set up a discount of 30 centimes, valid on gasoline and diesel. A nice discount, which then ended on November 16, replaced by a 10 cent discount only. It then disappeared on January 1. Nevertheless, the prices had remained rather reasonable after the end of the 30 cents, having even come down slightly. But now things have changed somewhat, and not necessarily for the better.

A sharp rise

Indeed, for a few days, the price of gasoline and diesel has gone back above the two euro mark in many service stations. A situation that has become rare in recent months, to the delight of motorists. But since the end of the discount, things are a little different then. But according to Michel-Edouard Leclerc, boss of the eponymous stores, the end of aid is not the only reason for the rise in prices. Asked by the Grand Juries RTL, Le Figaro, LCIhe asserts that ” something has happened for three months: with all fuel importers and whatever the fuels, we have an obligation today to supply ourselves excluding Russian fuel, excluding Russian diesel« .

A little help

And unfortunately, further rises are to be expected, as he explains that the “we do not yet see the effect on the fuel we are buying. About two or three months ago“. Fortunately, some low-income workers will be able to take advantage of a small allowance of €100, which may be requested from 16 January. This will be paid in one go, and may be allocated to several people from the same household.
