From Saturday the CO₂ tax will come in Austria.

Experts are already expecting a run on the pumps.

Drivers from the border region are also increasingly expected.

Munich – Until now, anyone who lives on the border with Austria has been able to quickly drive to the neighboring country to fill up.

The small detour to the Alpine republic was worth it, because the fuel was often a lot cheaper there.

But from Saturday it should be over,

reports

br24.de.

The Austrian automobile club ARBÖ expects that the price of petrol and diesel in Austria will rise by eight cents in one fell swoop.

The reason for this is the CO₂ tax, which will be due from October 1st and will be passed on in full to the price of petrol.

A liter of petrol in Austria currently costs an average of 1.66 euros, the news portal continues to report.

A liter of diesel is 1.91 euros.

Drivers in Germany currently pay a good 1.90 euros per liter of petrol - and for diesel even just under two euros.

Refueling in the neighboring country: Individual diesel bottlenecks are possible

In Austria, experts expect many drivers to fill up again in the next few days.

Concern about possible diesel bottlenecks is growing, reports

heute.at

.

“Individual bottlenecks cannot be ruled out.

However, I do not believe that there will be a large-scale failure, ”said ARBÖ expert Sebastian Obrecht.

It will still be a tough week for drivers, the expert continues.

Drivers should therefore monitor and compare fuel prices closely and "by all means fill up again by September 30," according to Obrecht's tip.

Accordingly, there could be price differences of up to 50 cents per liter between the cheapest and the most expensive gas station.

Tips for filling up at the pump:

  • Comparing prices:

    The prices at petrol stations can be easily compared using apps such as “Clever Tanken” or “ADAC Spritpreise”.

  • Brand choice:

    According to an ADAC study, some gas stations are on average around six cents per liter cheaper than others.

  • Optimum time:

    All gas stations start the morning with high prices, which slowly drop until the evening.

    Drivers usually refuel at the cheapest rates between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. and between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.

  • Fill up before you go on holiday:

    It can also be important to compare before you go on holiday whether the price of gas is cheaper in Germany or on the way to your holiday destination.

    In the Netherlands, according to ADAC, a liter of diesel should cost around ten percent more - a liter of premium around three cents.

  • Don't refuel on the freeway: that

    's what the ADAC automobile club recommends.

    In principle, fuel is more expensive on motorways than in cities, on country roads and at truck stops.

Filling up in the neighboring country: That's why it's more expensive in Germany

The reason for the price differences in the border region is easily explained.

The mineral oil tax in Austria is 39.7 cents for a liter of diesel and 48.2 cents for a liter of petrol.

In Germany, the energy tax rate for petrol is 65.45 cents per liter and for diesel the tax rate is 47.04 cents per liter.

In addition, there is the petroleum storage tax and 19 percent VAT.

Gasoline was sometimes 41 cents cheaper in Austria than at the last gas station in Bavaria.

The Austrian automobile club expects that petrol stations on the border in particular could experience a rush this week.

Expert Obrecht is already advising all drivers who want to save money to take a look in the trunk and not to carry unnecessary loads.

Everyone should think twice about short journeys and drive with foresight.
