Rising emergency. The holidays are over for almost everyone, but the fuel emergency remains alive. In addition to the prices of electricity and gas, the cost of gas scares the Italians. Thus, the Draghi government made a decision on the cut of excise dutieswhich provides a discount of 30 cents on the price to the distributor. The measure, extended several times, is expected until September 20. But the ministers of Economy and Ecological Transition, Daniele Franco And Roberto Cingolani, have decided to extend it.

Cars lined up at the petrol station, waiting for refueling

The price increases are back

The news comes the next day when there is a new slide in the price of fuel.

According to the survey by Staffetta Quotidiana, Q8 – on the morning of Tuesday 30 August – ha reduced by 1 cent per liter the recommended prices of petrol, increasing by 2 cents per liter those of diesel.

The new fuel prices

But what are the averages of fuel prices? Here are the surveys of the Price Observatory of the Ministry of Economic Development, processed by the Staffetta, detected at 8 am on Tuesday 30 August on about 15 thousand plants:

  • self service petrol at 1,774 euros / liter (+6 thousandth, 1,778 companies, 1,765 white pumps);
  • diesel self service at 1,846 euros / liter (+14, 1,847 companies, 1,845 white pumps);
  • gasoline served at 1,919 euros / liter (+9, 1,964 companies, 1,830 white pumps);
  • diesel served at 1,985 euros / liter (+16, 2,025 companies, 1,906 white pumps);
  • lpg served at 0.802 euros / liter (+1, 0.807 companies, 0.796 white pumps);

  • gnl € 2,728 / kg (+6, companies € 2,712 / kg, white pumps € 2,741 / kg).
