For the past few days, the prices of these fuels have been falling. Good news for consumers, especially during the holidays.
Of course, fuel prices often vary, and reductions may depend on gas stations. But in recent days, the drop in gasoline and diesel prices has been undeniable. During the holidays, this is good news for motorists.
Nationally, on average, diesel is 1.10 euros per liter while unleaded 95 is 1.40 euros. Motorists interviewed by France 3 do not seem to have noticed a change. We are still far from the peaks reached in July 2008.
A prolonged decline?
Jean-Louis Schilanski, president of the Center for Unconventional Hydrocarbons, specifies that the price of a barrel has halved in one year, from $ 100 in August 2014 to $ 50 today. “If we look at the fundamentals – supply and demand – it seems that we have started over a fairly long period of low oil prices”, he says.
This drop is less good news for exporting countries like Venezuela, Russia and Algeria. This situation announces major economic problems for these nations.
