The race to the top of the fuel prices it shows no sign of stopping, on the contrary it continues to run with the petrol and diesel that have passed the historical record in 1976, with the green reaching the average of 2,137 euros per liter, diesel 2,122 euros per liter. The fuel prices now seem to have undertaken a race to the top difficult to stop, with the diesel fuel which in some pumps has surpassed gasoline. And the situation is getting worse hour after hour because of the speculations derived from international tensions and after theRussian invasion of Ukraine.
The announced momentary cut in excise duties of 25 cents appears insufficient to counter the phenomenon of the increase in fuels, which is now also being investigatedAntitrust.
The oil price overnight it registered heavy increases and exceeded quota 100 dollars a barrel, which analysts say is causing soaring fuel. The worst case scenario could be a situation austerity like that of the 70s, with prices that could fluctuate between 2.5 and 3 euros per liter.
Gasoline and diesel price increase, fuel skyrocketing
Ongoing increases in gasoline and diesel And methane. The national average price of the gas according to the latest surveys (based on the processing of Quotidiano Energia) in self mode is 2,137 euros / liter. The average price charged for dieselalways self, is of 2,122 euros / liter.
Served, for petrol, the average price charged is 2,257 euros / liter. The average of the diesel served instead has reached 2,244 euros / liter.
According to the surveys Assoutentian association specializing in the transport sector, and the Codaconstoday a liter of gas And diesel respectively cost the 41.4% And 54.7% more than in the same period of 2021. If, on the other hand, we compare the data before the outbreak of the war, the price at the petrol pump rose in Italy by 19.7%, while diesel fuel increased by + 28.8%.
The sting on fuels has thus reached altitude +780 euros per year in the case of petrol cars and even +943 per year if you have a diesel car. And the upward figure is bound to be updated day by day.
Increase in the price of methane
The rise in gas market prices has led the methane to overcome even altitude 2 euros per kg. According to the latest surveys, the average price of auto methane is between 1,996 and 2,376 (no logo 2,274), while the prices charged in the LPG they have risen from 0.883 to 0.904 euro / liter (no logo 0.877).
The increase in methane has displaced everyone a bit, given that until now it was considered a cheap fuel. The increase, however, was caused by the cost of raw materials which has almost tripled since the beginning of the year. Unfortunately the war in Ukraine precipitated the situation.
The negative effects of the increase in methane, as well as on motorists, also affect consumers since it is also used by the entire industry of transport (such as truck drivers and those who drive work vehicles).
Price methane closed distributors
On the national territory there are 220 plants distribution of methane for motor vehicles, out of a total of 1,529 that supply natural gas at a retail price higher than 2,999 € / kg. Many of these plants have been forced to close, or are nearing the end of their activity.
The situation is so serious – complaint in a note Federmetano – that one third of the distribution network of Tuscany it is already closed. Same thing for what concerns the Marche, where over 40 outlets are no longer operational.
Not to mention the Sicily: here over 10 plants have had to stop and there are now only one or two points of sale actually functioning, because when the plants sell gas at three and a half euros per kilo, it is as if they were closed. The picture of the Campania.
Fuel increase effect on households
Petrol and diesel cost almost 30% more. Fuel increases inevitably have direct effects on consumer spending: a family spends more than just for refueling 500 Euros for petrol and diesel.
Regarding the cost of fuels, in particular gasoline, it must be remembered that on every liter purchased by consumers, € 1.04 go in taxes due to excise duties, over 60% on the final price at the pump. Therefore, to stem these sudden increases, the only way is to sterilize the VAT and eliminate the excise duty on fuelsat least the older ones.
Then there are the effects indirect that are already starting to make themselves felt in the pockets of Italians: from the increase in retail prices for a multitude of products to the heavy increases in electricity and gas (which risk recording record increases in October); industry is also facing higher production costs which are inevitably passed on to consumers.
In fact, in Italy the85% of the goods transported travels by road, and transport costs affect final prices charged to consumers in the supermarket.
The latest blow to an already very critical situation came with the outbreak of the war in Ukraine. The increase in prices could cause serious damage: from pasta to bread, passing through bills, gasoline, gold, aluminumthe Russian-Ukrainian crisis risks having very heavy effects both for consumers and for Italian industry.
