The discount of 18 cents per liter of fuel could be maintained until the end of the year. Set up in April, it should have ended on July 31, then August 31.

A discount of 18 cents that has become invisible. For the past few weeks, she seems like erased. Prices at the pump are soaring again. In a service station, diesel thus reached 2.12 euros per liter, while unleaded is displayed at 2.08 euros per litre. For motorists, the rebate is a thing of the past. “There is a 30 euro increase on what I was doing a few months ago, I don’t see a difference“, laments a motorist.

In recent months, the 18 cent discount has brought down fuel prices. In March, before the discount, diesel cost 2.11 euros per liter on average. With its application, its price has dropped to 1.81 euros per litre. But since early June, the curve has reversed. Prices are therefore rising again, and even finally exceed the initial price, to settle at 2.13 euros. The discount is therefore erased. So what can the government do? For example, it is possible to target large riders more. If the measure is being considered at Bercy, it still seems to be falling behind. The government also wants to extend the rebate at the pump until the end of the year, provided that the deputies vote on the “purchasing power” bill. Wednesday, June 29, Total announced 12 cents discount throughout the summer in its stations on the highways.
