Despite the government’s intervention, which has ensured more controls to avoid speculation on the price of petrol and diesel, consumers have to weigh their choices if they don’t want to pay astronomical costs for a full tank. Here are some suggestions on how to limit waste and which refuelers to choose, avoiding served mode and refueling stations on the motorway as much as possible

“There will soon be a stabilization of fuel prices”. This is what the Minister of the Environment said, Gilberto Pichetto Fratinbased on the data collected in the first eight days of the 2023. “It needs to be understood if we are talking about motorways or areas where there is only one petrol station. For a price above 2 euros, a specific justification is needed”, underlined the minister. The state of fuel prices has now exploded: from January 1st prices at the pump have gone up above 2 euros and on the highway the diesel has broken through the 2.5 euros per litre

THE CONTROLS – Meanwhile the cabinet of last January 10th has issued a decree entitled “Regulations on the transparency of fuel prices and on the strengthening of the control and sanctioning powers of the price guarantor” which provides for a number of rules: petrol vouchers they will not contribute to employment income; distributors will have to exhibit also the average price provided by the Ministry of the Environment and, in case of violation, are possible sanctions; establishment of one Early Warning Commission for Price Surveillance

.

BUT CAN YOU SAVE? – Each Italian region, like each fuel distributor, applies its own price tariff. To save, just choose the self-service modeif possible, which is always cheaper than servedboth for petrol and diesel. In some provinces of Italy savings for the consumer it also reaches 9%
