Fuel prices in Germany rose after the turn of the year.

A current analysis by the ADAC shows the inflation rate for petrol and diesel at the beginning of 2023.

Berlin/Munich - Last year, the energy crisis caused fuel prices in Germany to soar.

After an interim reduction, the cost of petrol and diesel rose again in the last calendar week of the year.

This trend continued at the turn of the year and in the first few days of 2023, to the displeasure of local drivers: As the ADAC reports in its new evaluation, average fuel prices have gone up again.

Fuel prices in Germany are currently rising - the price of crude oil is not to blame

According to the traffic club, a liter of Super E10 cost 1.743 euros on average nationwide, which was 5.7 cents more than the week before.

Diesel was 3.4 cents more expensive at the gas pumps in Germany and cost an average of 1.850 euros per liter.

As the ADAC also explained on Wednesday (January 4), the reason for the rising fuel costs is not to be found in the current price of crude oil: because this is actually down compared to the previous week, albeit only slightly.

A statement by the traffic club makes it clear that the current fuel price development is more due to the pricing policy of the oil companies.

Current fuel prices: diesel is more expensive than petrol despite the tax advantage

Consumers pay around 20 cents less tax on a liter of diesel than on a liter of Super E10.

Nevertheless, the fuel for self-igniters currently costs around nine cents more per liter.

In the course of the current development, however, the price difference between the two types of fuel has narrowed somewhat.

However, this still "not approximately" reflects the different energy tax rates.

Another reason for the more expensive diesel lies in the shrunken oil imports from Russia.

In this country and throughout Europe (due to economic needs) more diesel than super is needed.

With supplies reduced due to the Ukraine war and sanctions, mineral resources have become an even more valuable commodity.
