Reduced provider discount in December due to falling fuel prices

The Ministry of Finance reported that in December there is a decrease in the ISP discount by 3.9 cents per liter of diesel fuel and 2.4 cents per liter of gasoline, taking into account falling prices.

The guardianship statement states that, as announced, “the mechanism applied in the ISP is equivalent to reducing the VAT rate from 23% to 13%, and the compensation mechanism through the ISP reduces additional VAT income as a result of the changes. in fuel prices remain in effect.

Thus, taking into account the evolution of diesel and gasoline prices, “these temporary measures result in a reduction in the ISP rebate of 3.9 cents per liter of diesel fuel and 2.4 cents per liter of gasoline. a discount of 17.1 cents per liter for diesel ISP and 15.4 cents per liter for gasoline ISP,” the same note reads.

On the other hand, “the carbon tax update will be suspended until the end of the year,” and “taking into account all the measures in place, the reduction in the tax burden is 27.3 cents per liter of diesel fuel and 24.7 cents per liter of gasoline. “.

The government’s rebate mechanism assumes that a decrease in the price of fuel results in an increase in the Tax on Petroleum Products (NPT) due to a drop in VAT revenues.

This Friday, December 2, 2022, a moment occurred where few expected it to happen again. After repeated claims that the giant Airbus A380 is being retired for good, German airline Lufthansa has come back and decided to put it back into service two years later. As a result, one of the aircraft, registration D-AIMK, parked in Teruel (Spain), flew to Frankfurt.

According to the German company, the aircraft has been at the Spanish airport since May 2020, and since May of this year, more than 3,000 hours of work have been spent on its re-flight preparation. The same service is being performed on three other A380s that the company intends to restore to its network.


However, more work is needed before the aircraft is ready to fly with passengers again. Although additional landing gear maintenance was still required, today’s flight was to be flown at a much lower speed than usual and was performed with the landing gear down.

At the Lufthansa base in Frankfurt, the aircraft will be put on supports so that the landing gear retraction system can be tested. The aircraft will then fly to Manila in the Philippines, where Lufthansa Technik maintains a maintenance base, to undergo final repairs before release.

The Airbus A380 is scheduled to enter service in the summer of 2023 on high-demand flights from Munich. Videos were taken of the departure of the world’s largest passenger aircraft from Teruel (above and below, awaiting loading). Tracking Radarboxin turn, captured the entire flight.

I remind you that despite this price indication, each filling station can set the price it considers appropriate🇧🇷 Only private label gas stations should follow brand guidelines. Dealers and each brand may or may not follow the market leaders. But in my experience they go one after the other. This is the price trend for the coming week.
