The price of petrol and diesel was particularly low at the height of the coronavirus pandemic. In Europe, fuel is most expensive in Sweden and least costly in Bulgaria. Germany's diesel prices sit somewhere in the middle.
It's clear that the prices of both fuels will rise in the medium term. The reason? The rising price of CO2. When it comes to searching for cost-effective petrol stations, UTA Edenred fuel planning tools can help customers save multiple cents per litre.

Taxes (mineral excise duty, oil stock contribution and VAT) are fixed components of the price. Other factors in the overall cost include the price of crude oil and the cost of forwarding, distribution and administration -- plus a profit for the respective oil company.
Diesel prices vary from country to country - but why? Oil prices on international markets are the same, but different countries have different taxes. This is the reason behind low diesel prices in countries such as Poland or the Czech Republic.
