Fuel prices today: find the cheapest around you
Written by madishthestylebar

The price of fuel in France has been debated for several years now. It was in November 2018 that prices started to seriously increase at the pump. And for those who have forgotten, that’s where the beginning of the Yellow Vests crisis. On November 17, 2018, the French rebelled and took to the streets to demonstrate against several reforms. Then, little by little, other dissatisfactions were added to the list… In addition to that of the price of gasoline, which continued to increase. Only here, if certain demands of the yellow vests have been heard by the Government, the fight of the French has simply been stopped by another crisis… And a much more serious crisis: the health crisis linked to Covid-19.

It’s common in 2019, when the movements of the yellow vests, on a smaller scale but still very present, were still making a lot of noise in France, that the first cases of Coronavirus appeared in France… And it didn’t take long before that France, then, the world, puts itself on pause. As you know, in March 2020, President Macron summoned all French people to strict confinement, never seen during the fifth republic.

This is how the families found themselves, in more or less good conditions, locked up at home. Schools no longer welcomed children, businesses non-essential were closed, and shopping was sometimes an obstacle course. While each citizen has experienced his confinement in his own way, years later, the price of gasoline has never been so high and the cost of living too. However, salaries are not increasing and some French people no longer know how to make ends meet. Besides, putting gas can sometimes be a real source of stress today. In order to be able to anticipate your fill-ups, we suggest you find a map right here allowing you to locate the price of fuel today in your region, by station! It’s pretty handy, isn’t it?

Why are fuel prices rising?

The price of fuel is on the rise for multiple reasons! This week again, on average, compared to previous weeks, the price of fuel has increased by 13 cents per litre! A record since the start of inflation. The main reason for this increase concerns the embargo of the European Union on Russian pretoll products. From the evening of May 30, after its installation, it soared. Moreover, the value of the euro is in free fall compared to that of the dollar. But, all oil purchases are made in dollars… It therefore costs more! Also, since the end of confinements in the countries of the world, the inhabitants of the world have been using their vehicle more. As a result, the demand for energy increases!

How is the price of fuel calculated?

According to UFC Que Choisir, the price of an oil product is made up of several factors. First of all, there is the price of a barrel of crude (France has the Brent quotation). Then there is the refining margin, the distribution margin. Next come taxes. The first the TIPP, fixed per liter and the amount of which varies according to the product. The second, the tax VAT, it is a percentage exergized on the price excluding tax + the TIPP. It is 19.6% for fuels and 5.5% for fuel oil. Quite complex, isn’t it?

The denomination fuel check is misleading! And for good reason, the fuel check is absolutely not paid by check, nor sent by post… To be able to benefit from the fuel check, there is nothing to do on your side. This, just like the energy check. Indeed, for the self-employed, the check will be paid directly by Urssaf. For job seekers, they will receive their compensation from Pôle Emploi. And finally, for employees, the payment is paid by the employer and the sum is paid directly on the salary. You must of course be eligible for assistance. So, have you received your “fuel check”?

How to calculate the price of fuel per km?

To calculate the price of fuel per km, it’s very, very simple! To find out this fuel consumption rating, simply divide the amount of fuel consumed in liters by the distance you have traveled (in km of course!), then multiply by 100. For example, for 35 liters of fuel, and a distance of 420 km, the calculation would be: 35/420 = 0.0833×100 = 8.33 l / 100 kilometers! It’s rather very simple, isn’t it? What do you think ?
