Lhe different political parties have their ideas for lowering prices at the pump. Lhe presidential majority is considering a boost for the big rollers.

For their part, the Republicans want to massively reduce the tax on fuel, for a maximum price of 1.50 euros per litre. The National Rally wants to reduce VAT on fuel from 20% to 5.5%. About the Naked, she wanna block prices: less than 1.50 euro the liter. THowever, all these measures would be expensive.Any form of alteration that may be made to these prices is a loss of revenue for the State“, explains Anna Cretiprofessor of economics at the Center for Geopolitics of Energy.
