Gasoline prices have fallen to pre-war levels



Gasoline prices have fallen to pre-war levels

Next Monday, a liter of 95 petrol will fall 10 cents to 1,789 euros, reaching pre-Ukraine conflict levels. The relief is smaller in plain diesel, which drops just 9 cents to 1,736 euros per litre.

Next Monday, when the consumer goes to fill up the car, he will feel a significant relief in his wallet. Falling for the ninth week in a row, the average price of a liter of 95 petrol is expected to fall another 10 cents, from 1,889 euros to 1,789 euros, reaching pre-war levels in Ukraine, the Directorate General of Energy said. and Geology (DGEG).

THIS IS for the first time this fuel is below pre-war values: on the eve of the start of the conflict, on February 23, a liter of ordinary gasoline cost 1816 euros, that is, two hundredths more than the prices that should be charged at gas stations next week.

Simple diesel should also be cheaper, but the drop is less dramatic than that of gasoline: from 1.826 euros per liter (the average value indicated by the DGEG) to 1.736 euros. A drop of nine cents that nonetheless maintains a value above the €1,660 recorded prior to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The explanation lies in the fact that Russia is very strong in diesel fuel, so its exit from the market affects this fuel more than gasoline. Question about the law of supply and demand.

The war in Ukraine began early in the morning on February 24th. In the following weeks, fuel prices rose sharply, mainly due to the conflict and the embargo on Russian oil imposed by the West as a sanctions measure. On March 14, simple gasoline exceeded the threshold of 2 euros per liter, while diesel was very close to this threshold. Diesel broke the 2 euro per liter barrier later in the week of June 13th.

In recent weeks, news of a possible recession coupled with runaway inflation that could trigger devastating stagflation has been ringing the bells. Recall that at the end of July the United States of America entered a technical recession. The world’s largest economy recorded a 0.9% fall in the second quarter of the year after contracting 1.6% in the first three months of 2022.

Given this scenario and the news that the US has increased crude oil inventories, the barrel of oil in world markets has fallen. This week, the average Brent crude price is down more than 8% from last week’s average, which explains another drop in fuel prices next Monday.

Gasoline and diesel prices continue to be affected by three government mitigation measures and will be reviewed at the end of August. The ISP rebate, equivalent to a reduction in the VAT rate from 23% to 13%, compensation through the ISP, a reduction in additional VAT revenues, and a suspension of the carbon tax update reduced the fee by 28.2 cents, the tax on diesel and 32.1 cents. on gasoline, according to the Socialist Executive.
