Fuel in Germany is more expensive than in neighboring EU countries – Economy & Volkswagen – News


With the end of the so-called tank discount at the end of August, fuel in Germany is again more expensive than in all direct neighboring EU countries. As of September 5, the average daily prices in Germany were 2.07 euros per liter of Super E5 and 2.16 euros per liter of diesel, as reported by the Federal Statistics Office on Monday.

Only in Denmark (2.04 euros) and the Netherlands (2.01 euros) was the first gasoline as expensive as in Germany. Car owners in neighboring Poland were able to refuel at a cheaper price of 1.38 euros for Super and 1.61 euros for Diesel.


Gasoline and diesel taxes were cut in Germany between June and August, causing prices at gas stations to drop. Including the effects of VAT, the Super liter was reduced by 35.16 cents, for diesel it was 16.71 cents. The extent to which tax exemptions were passed on to customers to terminate was disputed. Normal tax rates have been in effect since 1 September. This means that Germany is once again one of the most expensive countries in the EU.

In general, according to the Federal Office, oil prices are still higher than before the start of the war in Ukraine. On February 21, 2022, one liter of E5 still cost 1.80 euros and diesel 1.66 euros per liter. The increase in the price of diesel fuel is particularly evident. Oil was more expensive in March.
