The average price of petrol and diesel sold in French service stations has fallen slightly, remaining at very high levels, but falling below the symbolic threshold of two euros/litre for diesel, according to the latest official figures published on Monday . The liter of diesel was worth an average of 1.9946 euros last week, down nearly seven cents from the previous week, said the Ministry of Energy Transition, which stops these figures on Friday.

A peak at 2.14 euros per liter in March

This fuel had reached its peak this year at 2.1407 euros in mid-March. The super unleaded 95-E10 also fell below the two euro threshold, reaching 1.9820 euro on average (-4.68 cents). Same trend for the liter of SP 95 unleaded petrol, down 5.34 cents, but which remains above two euros, at 2.0823 euros on average.

Prices that include the discount of 18 cents

This price paid takes into account the government rebate of 18 cents per liter at the pump, which should gradually disappear by the end of the year and be paid in particular on October 1 by a more targeted allowance, for low-income workers and big wheels.

They are part of a context of a general spike in energy prices, against a backdrop of post-Covid recovery, the war in Ukraine and supply difficulties.
