If the trend continues, fuel could soon return to less than 2 euros. Because: According to the ADAC, gasoline and diesel in particular became significantly cheaper within a week.
Are fuel prices finally recovering? Gasoline and diesel had become much more expensive with the end of the tax cut on September 1. But it has since deteriorated. According to an ADAC press release on Wednesday, both fuels became significantly cheaper again within a week.
A liter of diesel cost €2.021 on average across the country on Tuesday. It was 9.6 cents lower than a week earlier. If the trend continues, fuel could soon return to less than 2 euros. Premium E10 gasoline fell in one week by 3.5 cents to 1,910 euros. Compared to the beginning of the month, the diesel lost 15.2 cents, the E10 11.3 cents.
According to the ADAC, the price level is still a bit too high
The development of fuel prices “is going in the right direction, but there is still a long way to go from normalization”, according to the ADAC. “The price level at petrol stations is still a little too high given the drop in crude oil prices and the potential for lower prices is considerable.”
Prices at individual gas stations can differ significantly from daily averages. On the one hand, there are strong fluctuations during the day – fuel is usually significantly cheaper in the evening than in the morning. On the other hand, there are currently strong regional differences. In Bavaria in particular, motorists have recently had to dig deeper into their pockets to stock up on fuel. On the other hand, a diesel price below 2 euros should already be a reality in many other regions of Germany.
