Tank Discount from June: What Drivers Should Know

Abu Dhabi Airports Company warns of fuel bottlenecks

Tank discount set: Why motorists shouldn’t fill up on June 1

The relief package provided by the federal government will begin on June 1. Motorists should also benefit – thanks to significantly lower prices when refueling. The surge in crude oil prices as a result of the war in Ukraine has pushed gasoline and diesel prices to record levels in recent months. But is the tank discount worth it? And how long should the next tank fill be delayed? Overview.

How much will the fuel be cheaper?

Gasoline and diesel prices have risen steadily since the war began in February. While the price of a liter of the Super E10 still costs about 1.65 euros at the beginning of January, the liter price peaked on March 15 at 2.29 euros, ADAC shows in the price comparison. This made the Super E10 about 45 cents a liter more expensive, and the diesel about 65 cents more.

According to ADAC, prices have recently fallen slightly again. According to a recent assessment, a liter Super E10 currently has an average price of €2,036 nationwide, and there is an average of €2,049 per liter of diesel (as of May 13). ADAC expects gasoline to become about 30 cents cheaper from the start of the relief package on June 1. A saving of about 14 cents for diesel is expected.

Fill up the car: Wait until June 1st?

According to the ADAC, fuel prices are clearly excessive. So many motorists want to wait until the relief package starts to fill their cars again. Although the price difference may be beneficial, the ADAC recommends not relying on credit until then. If you can expect that the filling of the tank may be tight by the end of the month, it is best to refuel a little beforehand. Otherwise, drivers should expect to run out of fuel in the tank in the event of jams.

Will there be enough fuel available from June?

Abu Dhabi Airports Company warns of a strong rush to gas stations, especially at the beginning of June. There may be longer waiting times and queues at gas stations. In an interview with Wirtschaftswoche, the president of the Federal Association of Independent Petroleum Stations (bft), Dred El White, expressed concern about the expected rush to gas stations from 1 June. Due to the high demand, gas stations need more fuel. This may lead to bottlenecks. “June 1 could be really dramatic,” confirms the BFT Chairman.

Otherwise, how can I save on fuel?

Despite the high fuel prices, it is possible to save a little when filling. On the other hand, ADAC recommends using an app to compare prices at various gas stations. It may also be a good idea to keep an eye on the course of the day. As a rule, fuel costs less in the evening than in the morning.

Passengers can also switch to local public transportation. The federal government relief package also includes the so-called monthly ticket 9 euros, with which you can use public transport throughout the country from June for 9 euros per month.

The government is struggling for more relief when it comes to refueling and heating

The high costs of refueling and heating should be mitigated. But the traffic light government hardly agrees on how to do it.

Will the fuel get cheaper in the long run?

The federal government’s relief package is a temporary rate cut. This means that during the next three months, that is, until the end of August, an exemption is planned and taxes on gasoline and diesel will be reduced to the minimum allowed in Europe. It is not yet clear what will happen next. However, long-term changes are being discussed.
