Fuels: soon the end for discounts on prices at the pump, which stop this December 31


As announced by the government, this aid from the State and TotalEnergies will be replaced by a more targeted device.

Last days to benefit from a slightly cheaper liter of gasoline or diesel.

This December 31 will not only mark the end of the year 2022 but also that of the fuel discounts, which somewhat reduced the bill for consumers.

The price of a full tank of petrol or diesel should therefore mechanically increase, from the first hours of 2023.

Introduced since September, this measure, which made it possible to reduce the price of a liter by 30 cents until mid-November and then by only 10 cents, will be definitively extinguished.

At the same time, the similar aid that the French giant TotalEnergies had added to that of the government will disappear.

In total, the price per liter could therefore increase by up to 20 cents in some stations.

Instead, the executive decided to introduce more targeted aid: a “

fuel check

” worth 100 euros.

However, it is not a specific device for large wheelers, as the State had initially envisaged.

From January 1, beneficiaries will only have to meet three criteria: working, having a car and income not exceeding a certain threshold.

If a household includes two taxable adults and two vehicles, the aid can be doubled and reach 200 euros for the whole household, indicated the Prime Minister on RTL, at the beginning of December.

This system should benefit "

10 million

" French people, again according to Elisabeth Borne.

€1.5 billion budgeted for new aid

To qualify, applicants must log into their tax account, enter their tax number and license plate.

They will also have to declare on their honor that they use their vehicle to get to work.

For the moment, a credit of 1.5 billion euros has been included in the 2023 budget to finance this measure.

An amount much lower than the 7.6 billion euros put on the table for rebates at the pump this year.

The rebate on petroleum products had been decided against a backdrop of high inflation and concerns over the war in Ukraine which drove up prices at the pump.

Its withdrawal is likely to lead to a new surge.

In mid-November, the reduction in the rebate by the State and TotalEnergies had thus boosted prices at the pump, considerably increasing the fuel bill for motorists.

A phenomenon reinforced by the shortages that affected the country at that time.

However, users are benefiting from the lull in the oil markets, which has seen the price of the raw material drop significantly in recent weeks.
