Fuels: Corsica, "single metropolitan region" excluded from the price cap at the pump


In France, in all the group's service stations, a liter of diesel and unleaded cannot exceed €1.99, from today. The Isle of Beauty is not one of them.

Corsica, largely forgotten by measures aimed at limiting the refueling bill?

While the boss of TotalEnergies, Patrick Pouyanné, recently announced the capping of fuel prices sold in the group's stations, the Isle of Beauty risks being “

the only region

” where this measure will not apply.

An exception noted by some residents.

Concretely, the cap, at 1.99 euro, of the liter of unleaded and diesel announced by the energy company came into force on March 1st.

It will remain active until the end of 2023. In detail, the fuels concerned are B7 premier diesel, B10 diesel, 95-E10 unleaded, SP95-E5 and E85 superethanol.

Only here: "

Corsica is the only metropolitan region to have only ... diesel Excellium

", underlines the collective Take action against the high cost of fuel in Corsica, on Twitter.

And to add that the island is also “

the only region to have only SP95 Excellium


For the collective, Corsica therefore risks being “

the only region

” not to benefit from the measure announced by TotalEnergies.

Asked by a user on Twitter, TotalEnergies explained that “

the cap is valid for all fuels except the Excellium range, choices had to be made.

We preferred to choose the duration and propose a measure available in the long term, throughout the year 2023

”, justified the company.

The group also confirmed to France 3 that it only sells Diesel and SP95 Excellium in its stations on the island, adding that it is looking for alternative measures for this territory.

Context also explains consumer expectations.

If fuel prices remain below 1.99 euros, they remain at a high level.

In Corse-du-Sud, a liter of diesel is offered at at least 1.83 euros, thus, according to government data, against 1.77 euros in Haute-Corse.

At the same time, the cost of living has increased over the past year on the island, as everywhere in France, and inflation should continue, while negotiations between manufacturers and supermarkets should lead to an overall price increase. approaching 10%.

While waiting for solutions to pay less for their fuel, the Corsicans will have to tighten their belts a little more.
