The national average price of petrol in self mode is 2.069 euros / liter (2.061 previously), with the different brands ranging between 2.060 and 2.084 euros / liter (no logo 2.051). The average price of self diesel fuel goes to 2,006 euros / liter (against 1,994), with companies between 2,004 and 2,011 euros / liter (no logo 1,994).
This is what is shown by Quotidiano Energia from the data communicated by the managers to the Mise Price Observatory updated at 8 am yesterday, June 16. “The rise in prices on the fuel network does not stop. – he explains – While the prices of petroleum products in the Mediterranean closed yesterday with a minus sign”.
“Yesterday they gave me the confirmation that the petrol discount will be renewed for the whole summer”. Matteo Salvini said this in connection with Telelombardia this morning before entering the bunker of the Ucciardone, in Palermo, for the hearing of the Open Arms trial. “I asked Franco to find the resources and he replied that we need 4-5 billion. So I said to him: let’s find them. The previous discount expires on July 8 and by June there is a commitment to renew this blessed discount” .
“They do not hint at curbing the increases on fuels, which today stand at 2.069 euros per liter for petrol and 2.006 euros per liter for diesel. Just a month ago the national average price of petrol in self mode was 1.83 euros per liter, the price of diesel of 1.835 euros per liter. These are alarming levels, still far above those at which the costs of fuels should be attested, even more so in light of the cut in excise duties made by the Government to calm the fuel costs “. The Federconsumatori National Observatory, taking into account the variations in the cost of oil, the level of exchange and the cut in excise duties, has calculated that today there is a surcharge of around 32 cents on fuel. This translates into an increase of 384 euros per year for a family that makes 2 full loads of about 50 liters per month. The increases, combined with speculative pressures, cause the prices of consumer goods to rise dramatically, more than 86% transported by road, so much so as to push families to an increasing number of sacrifices and cuts in their spending, even in food industry. This is why a more incisive intervention is essential: to counteract the speculations in progress, both on the internal market and on international markets, to make the reduction of excise duties structural, to adopt new measures useful to curb the increases, defining a maximum ceiling for prices at distributors, to define the VAT charge at the net cost of fuels, no longer on the amount including excise duties, as is the case today with the application of a tax on the tax. “The serious, determined, but above all timely control over the ‘cunning of the pump’, combined with the definition of precise rules on the determination of prices and the application of taxation are necessary and fundamental in a delicate phase such as the one that the country is going through and not they can be postponed more “, says Michele Carrus, president of Federconsumatori.
