Gas price: No holiday surcharge at the gas station

Even on the main travel days this summer, petrol and Diesel in Germany is still relatively cheap. A wave of price holidays in the various States, or on the days of the conventional bed exchange increases at the beginning of the summer, has not yet been observed, according to the auto club ADAC. This is a change compared to earlier times. Today, the prices fluctuated in the course of a day, and the changes on special days such as holidays start to be less noticeable.

This could be for the upcoming weekend again relevant: the ADAC expects again significant tourist traffic. Bayern starts a vacation in the summer, while Bremen, lower Saxony, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and parts of the Netherlands go into the second week of the holidays.

With the start of the Corona-crisis like the fuel prices significantly and not have risen yet again to the old level, even if there has been since the lows in April, a certain amount of recovery. Compared to the previous week, Super E10 reduced in an average of 0.6 cents to 1.25 Euro per litre. Diesel has been with 1,085 euros per Liter, 0.3 cents cheaper. Prior to the crisis, Super had cost € 1.40 per litre, Diesel is more than 1.30 euros. In the meantime, motorists could refuel but at least Diesel in the crisis, often for less than 1 Euro per litre.

A great influence on the development of the fuel prices the price of crude oil, the ADAC reported. A Barrel (barrel is 159 litres) of North sea Brent cost is currently around $ 44 and similar to much as in the past week. At the same time, the Euro rose after the EU summit on more than 1,15 Dollar and reached the highest level in the current year, which cheapens the Dollar-traded crude oil.
