What a shame: now filling up diesel has become even more expensive. You’ll have to dig deep into your wallet anyway. At the beginning of summer the price of one staircase was 1,506 euros. Now it is 1,733 euros. This is 0.227 euros more – an increase of 15 percent compared to June.
However, the price of Eurosuper petrol has remained almost unchanged over the same period, from 1.583 euros per liter in June to 1.601 euros currently – which corresponds to an increase of just one percent.
Diesel drivers will clearly feel the price increase. For a 50 liter tank you will have to pay 11.35 euros more per tank!
The logic is also unreasonable: because heating oil is becoming more expensive, diesel must also be more expensive. “Anyone who fills up with diesel at local gas stations these days has to be troubled by high prices again,” admits Thomas Harruch “Heute”, regional manager of ARBO Upper Austria. “Diesel prices rise just in time for the summer season. Apparently it’s not just people with oil heaters that are being asked to pay, but diesel drivers too.
Many homeowners will fill their heating oil tanks before the start of winter. However, the price of diesel is indirectly linked to the price of heating oil. “If demand for heating oil goes up, so does the price of diesel,” explains Thomas Harruch. “And high global oil prices are ensuring that overall fuel prices are back to high levels.” “
