Inflation continues to rise, prices are exploding. From now on, at least drivers can save at the pump. The billion-dollar tank discount has been in effect since midnight. However, commuters cannot save everywhere. FOCUS Online makes the price check. How much does petrol and diesel cost in your city.

The tank discount should apply at midnight sharp. According to the traffic light government, a liter of petrol should be 35 cents cheaper and diesel about 17 cents cheaper. In fact, the tank discount is much lower.

In the past few days, almost 10,000 petrol stations throughout Germany have raised their petrol and diesel prices by up to 30 cents. FOCUS Online clearly documented this in a graphic. Prices shot up especially on May 14th, May 17th, May 28th, May 29th and May 31st.

Before Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine, a liter of diesel cost 1.67 euros in Germany, a liter of Super (E5) around 1.80 euros per liter (E5) and a liter of E10 only 1.74 euros per liter. Shortly after the invasion, prices for diesel climbed to an average of 2.31 euros and super to 2.26 euros per liter.
