Crude oil prices have remained largely the same over the past few days, but fuel is still more expensive.
The ADAC does not like that at all.
Munich – The oil prices on the wholesale market have now eased again.
Nevertheless, motorists still have to dig deep into their pockets when refueling.
As the current ADAC evaluation of fuel prices in Germany shows, petrol in particular has become significantly more expensive.
According to this, a liter of Super E10 costs 1.779 euros on average nationwide, which is 4.2 cents more than a week ago.
Diesel is also more expensive: one liter currently costs 1.858 euros, which is 2.9 cents more than a week ago.
Fuel prices: ADAC considers petrol and diesel to be too expensive
The ADAC believes that the fuel prices are significantly inflated.
The price of a barrel of Brent crude oil is at a similar level as in the previous week, and the euro has strengthened against the US dollar again.
A month ago, when the price of oil was similarly high, Super E10 cost about ten cents less than it does now, and diesel about six cents.
The price difference between diesel and Super E10 has melted and is currently 7.9 cents.
However, normalization is not yet in sight.
As a reminder: A liter of diesel is taxed more than 20 cents less than petrol, but diesel still costs significantly more.

High petrol and diesel prices: When is the cheapest time to refuel
ADAC recommends refueling in the evening if possible.
Fuel prices are particularly low between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Experience has shown that prices are highest in the morning, when you pay an average of around 12 cents more than in the evening.
