Fuel: an association calls for a reduction in taxation

The association 40 million motorists calls on the government to lower fuel taxes. To what extent?

For more than a year already, the price of fuel has been at its highest. A difficult situation for motorists, many of whom have already made a request to take advantage of the €100 compensation. However, this is only reserved for the most modest workers, who have declared a reference tax income of less than €14,700 in 2021. In total, ten million people should be affected by this aid, which should make it possible to compensate for the price increase. But this is far from sufficient, while many drivers will not be able to take advantage of it. This will be particularly the case of unemployed peopleas well as all those with a slightly higher income.

Towards lower taxes?

The solution would therefore not be the establishment of aid from the government, but a reduction in taxes. And for good reason, you should know that the latter represent no less than 60% of the price of a liter of gasoline and diesel. An intolerable situation according to the association 40 million motorists, which calls on our leaders to lower taxes. In a column published in the Journal Du Dimanche, the general delegate Pierre Chasseray calls on the government “iWe need a sustainable measure on fuels. In 2012, Jean-Marc Ayrault had already acted for a drop in fuel taxation on an ad hoc basis. Because, already at the time, in a context of soaring oil prices, the French found themselves caught by the throat« .

To what extent?

But then, how much would the drop be? Pierre Chasseray then proposes “ a reduction in taxationon fuel at 5.5%, up to basic necessities“. This would then correspond to a saving of 22 cents on each litre. It also offers a drop inaround twenty cents on the TICPE. The spokesperson for the association also recalls that “all European rankings show France between 3rd and 5th position in terms of fuel taxation. We puncture too much, that’s why it’s not acceptable”.
