Fuels, double jump in prices for petrol and diesel

2022 ended with a rise in price lists, 2023 opens with an increase in excise duties on petrol, diesel and LPG

2022 ended with a rise in price lists, 2023 opens with the increase in excise duties on petrol, diesel and LPG, back to the “normal” level of 21 March 2022. The prices of refined products also closed the year with an increase, the third consecutive. Staffetta Quotidiana detects it. On the last day of the year, the following changes were recorded in the recommended prices of the major brands: for Eni, Q8 and Tamoil +2 cents/litre on petrol and +1 cents/litre on diesel. Yesterday, January 1, the increase in excise duties arrived: +15 cents/litre on petrol and diesel, +2.8 cents/litre on LPG. A rise to which VAT must be added and which therefore has an impact on pump prices of 18.3 cents/litre on petrol and diesel and 4.3 cents/litre on LPG. Overall, therefore, the prices of petrol and diesel rose by about 20 cents per liter compared to 30 December.

The excise duty on petrol rose from 578.4 to 728.4 euros per thousand liters (72.8 cents/litre), that on diesel from 467.4 to 617.4 euros per thousand liters (61.7 cents/litre) , that on LPG from 216.67 to 266.77 euros per thousand kilos (i.e. from 119.17 to 147.27 euros per thousand litres).
