Never before have drivers in Germany had to pay more for diesel fuel than they currently do – this is shown by the current ADAC evaluation of fuel prices. According to this, diesel currently costs a nationwide average of 1.601 euros per liter and thus 1.6 cents more than in the previous week. With the recent rise in prices, the diesel price has jumped over the 1.60 euro mark for the first time.
Gasoline is 1.7 cents more expensive than last week. Drivers currently have to pay an average of 1.672 euros for a liter of Super E10. However, the E10 is still 3.7 cents away from the all-time high (1.709 euros on September 13, 2012).
According to the ADAC, the main reason for the increase in fuel prices is the significantly increased price of crude oil. While a barrel was still trading at around 84 US dollars a week ago, it is now – after the escalation of the situation in Yemen – already 88 dollars. Crude oil was last more expensive in 2014.
In view of the higher fuel costs, according to the recommendation of the ADAC, drivers should take advantage of the fluctuations in fuel prices over the course of the day more than ever. Evaluations show that petrol and diesel generally cost the most in the morning around 7 a.m., and are cheapest in the evening between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. and between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. If you fill up then you can save up to seven cents per liter on average.
