Gasoline prices still up. Salvini: 'Tomorrow in the CDM we evaluate intervention'


Codacons estimates an annual increase in expenditure of around 214 euros per motorist. The managers' association replies: 'The government takes refuge in witch hunts'. Salvini: 'Tomorrow in CDM we evaluate intervention' (ANSA)

A full tank of petrol costs 8.9 euros more than it did at the end of December

: the calculation comes from Codacons which underlines how it is possible to estimate a greater expense on an annual basis of around 214 euros per motorist.

"Beyond the extreme cases recorded in the islands or on some motorway sections, where the price lists are even close to 2.5 euros per litre, Codacons states in a note, it is clear that something is not right on the pump prices front. The rise in petrol and diesel was widely expected as an effect of the increase in excise duties, but net of the higher taxation, the price component that is not affected by VAT and excise duties should have fallen due to the sharp drop in oil prices, which fell in these days well below 80 dollars a barrel.It is also not clear how two pumps of the same brand, but located in different areas,

"As a government, tomorrow there is a council of ministers and we will discuss whether, between war, expensive materials and expensive raw materials, it is the case to intervene and there is money to intervene".

This is what Transport Minister Matteo Salvini

said in Brescia

when speaking of fuel price increases.

"I'm happy - he added - that there are blanket checks, because even in this case, as in the case of gas and electricity, someone is taking advantage of them, because you can't pay 1.70 euros for the same product in a city and 2.30 euros in another. It is right to check and verify".

"When it becomes difficult to give answers, then the Government takes refuge in an improbable witch hunt, looking for the culprit of the misdeeds on the price of fuel".

This is what Fegica, the trade association of fuel distribution plant managers, affirms.

"Obviously, the easiest choice is to start from the last link in the chain: the operators who, with a margin of 3 cents per liter (and a price fixed by the companies) are the guardians of the public trust", underlines the association, recalling that "managers are obliged to communicate weekly to the Mimit Observatory of the price charged to the consumer and to electronic invoices; to the fees transmitted electronically to the Revenue Agency and to transfer, every day,

of sales made with direct connection to the Revenue Agency.

All of this in an hyper-controlled context in which fuel purchases and sales through stamped and sealed dispensers are noted on stamped registers on a daily basis". For the government, however, "it seems easier to control a category of micro-enterprises than to investigate the real problems that cause , upstream, these situations.

Was there perhaps some deluded person who could imagine how the return to the previous condition of the Draghi discount introduced in March 2022 took place without any backlash?

- asks Fegica - But, as you know, everyone is good at talking: the hard part is the facts.

Those are stubborn.

The government appears lost, unarmed and without any will to go back up the chain so as not to disturb the powers that be".
