Diesel drivers currently have to pay more for their fuel than ever before, as the ADAC announced on Monday in Munich.
On a nationwide daily average, a liter of diesel cost 1.584 euros, which is the highest value ever measured by the traffic club.
E10 premium petrol hit the books at 1.659 euros per liter, which is just 5 cents away from its record level from 2012.
"For people who have a diesel and have to drive to work, the prices are already hefty," said ADAC fuel market expert Jürgen Albrecht. “At the moment everything comes at the same time with the diesel price. The typical seasonal increase, the expensive oil and the increase in the CO2 tax at the beginning of the year. «The increase in the CO2 price amounts to around 1.5 cents per liter of fuel. The oil price had recently risen against the background of the unrest in the producing country of Kazakhstan.
Also noticeable is the very small gap of 7.5 cents between the diesel and the Super E10.
"From the point of view of the tax situation, it would actually be a good 20 cents," said Albrecht.
However, it is typically lower in winter.
“On the one hand, this is due to the fact that diesel then becomes more expensive due to the higher demand for heating oil.
On the other hand, in the first few months of the year in particular, travel, which primarily drives gasoline demand, is lower.
In summer it is typically exactly the other way around and the distance is therefore usually greater. "
High prices as early as November
The fuel prices had already seen a roller coaster ride in 2021.
After a very favorable start, Diesel reached an all-time high in autumn, which has now been exceeded again. Super just barely missed its record values.
November was the most expensive month for refueling ever.
After that, prices fell for a few weeks before they went up again.
