From the beginning of June to the end of August, refueling should become cheaper.

Consumer advocates advise that because of the impending bottlenecks on June 1, "no one should almost completely empty their tank beforehand".

As part of the planned

energy tax relief for petrol and diesel

from June 1, the petrol station industry is preparing for possible bottlenecks at the petrol pumps.

"A high demand from motorists will meet a low supply," warned the chairman of the Federal Association of Free Petrol Stations, Duraid El Obeid, in the "Rheinische Post" (Friday).

Refueling should be cheaper from the beginning of July to the end of August

According to Aral, it said: "We are prepared, the logistics chains are robust, so that short-term deliveries to gas stations are also possible." drive almost completely empty before that".

From the beginning of June to the end of August, refueling is to become cheaper by reducing the energy tax on fuels to the minimum permitted in the EU.

The tax rate for petrol is to be reduced by almost 30 cents and by 14 cents for diesel

.

At the same time, the tax burden is reduced even further

– because value added tax is no longer due on the part of the energy tax that is no longer applicable.

As confirmed by the Federal Ministry of Finance, the total tax relief is 35.2 cents per liter of petrol and 16.7 cents per liter of diesel.

After the approval of the Bundestag, the Bundesrat should also vote on the coalition plans on Friday (May 20).

Energy tax cuts – rush to gas stations expected on June 1st

The general manager of the Fuels and Energy Association, Christian Küchen, told the "Rheinische Post" that the sharp reduction in energy taxes presented the petrol station companies with a double challenge.

On the one hand, they would try to reduce their stocks by June 1st in order to be able to sell as little highly taxed fuel as possible cheaper from June onwards.

On the other hand, it is to be expected that motorists will drive to the petrol pumps en masse from June 1 of all times to fill up empty tanks.

"Therefore, temporary bottlenecks at the stations cannot be completely ruled out," said Küchen.

According to the information, the energy tax on fuel is levied at the refineries and tank farms and not at the gas stations themselves. Each liter of diesel that the gas stations have delivered before June 1st will therefore cost them more than from June 1st.

From June onwards, however,

significantly lower sales prices can be expected

, regardless of what the goods cost when they were purchased.

Train travel is also cheaper from June to August thanks to the 9-euro monthly ski pass.
