To avoid any speculative phenomena on fuel prices on roads and motorways following the halt to discounts on excise duties, Mef sources confirm that the Minister of Economy, Giancarlo Giorgetti, has already given a mandate, last December, to the Guardia di Finanza to monitor the situation and that the results of the checks carried out will be announced next week.
Fuel boom, diesel on the highway towards 2.5 euros.
From increase to increase since the beginning of the year, i.e. since the government definitively canceled all the discount on excise duties, fuel prices continue to grow.
And after petrol reported in recent days at an altitude of 2 euros in some stations, today it is the case of diesel that Codacons consumers photograph at around 2.5 euros per liter on the motorway.
And there are 'anomalous' peaks in the Aeolian Islands or in Sardinia where it costs more to get petrol.
Prices on the motorway are prohibitive: in served mode, the green light costs 2.392 euros per liter on the A1 Rome-Milan, and diesel travels at 2.5 euros per liter (2.479 euros).
A situation already brought to the attention of the government: in recent days, in fact, the Minister of the Environment and Energy Security Gilberto Pichetto had branded it as "speculation"

Pichetto had also announced that if the level remained structurally above that threshold, the executive would be ready to intervene again.
The minister hypothesized the case of a ''stable and significant'' growth.

This has today prompted consumers in chorus to quickly ask for a new intervention: ''Meloni, if you're there, hit it''.
The Codacons reports further increases in the prices of petrol and diesel.
Analyzing the updates communicated today by the managers, record price lists have been recorded in some areas: on the island of Vulcano, for example, diesel has reached 2.349 euros per liter in served mode, 2.239 euros/litre for petrol - denounces Codacons - A La Maddalena, in Sardinia, petrol rises to 2.087 euros per litre, 2.229 euros for diesel.
In Ischia a liter of green costs 2.054 euros today, for diesel it costs 2.104 euros.
Prices on the motorway are prohibitive, where diesel travels at around 2.5 euros per liter (2.479 euros).
"Fuel prices seem out of control, and after the stop to the cut in excise duties we are witnessing strong increases in pump price lists throughout the territory, the extent of which does not seem in any way justified by the
