Frankfurt/Main (dpa/lhe) - As a result of the energy tax that has been reduced since midnight, the fuel prices at Hesse's filling stations have fallen significantly, according to the ADAC. A spokesman for the ADAC Hessen-Thüringen said on Wednesday that there was a price reduction for Super E10 by around 20 cents.
In Frankfurt, the lowest price for Super E10 on Wednesday morning was 1.82 euros per liter - on Tuesday evening it was 2.10 euros. A similar price reduction can be seen in Wiesbaden: the lowest price for Super E10 was EUR 1.82 on Wednesday, compared to EUR 2.11 the day before.
Diesel prices have also fallen. In Frankfurt, for example, the cheapest diesel price on Wednesday was EUR 1.86, compared to EUR 1.93 the day before.
"On average, we see a price reduction, but it is not yet the planned amount," said the ADAC spokesman. Many petrol stations would have bought according to the old conditions. Larger price reductions can be expected in the coming days as old stocks are sold out. Due to the reduced mineral oil tax, the theoretical price difference for premium petrol would be 35 cents per liter.
The data is based on an evaluation of the ADAC fuel price app in the largest cities in Hesse. A complete overview is not yet available.
