Record gasoline prices in Germany, already over 2 euros per liter!

The price of Shell V-Power Racing fuel at a station located in the center of the German capital exceeded two euros for the first time! On Monday morning in the Berlin district of Schöneberg it cost almost 2.01 euros per liter.

To make matters worse, even the price of regular high-octane gasoline at many gas stations located along German freeways is increasingly exceeding the two euro barrier.

On Monday morning at the Shell station on the A61 near Hunsrück you had to pay almost 2.13 euros for a liter of petrol!

Fuel prices shock drivers in Germany

Drivers in Germany are now paying even more than in 2014, when the highest price for Super Plus petrol in Berlin was 1.86 euros per liter.

What is the reason for this? Oil prices are at their highest in eight years. In addition, the state is also making a big profit: every liter of gasoline purchased is about 1 euro for the tax office!

Back in September, Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (46, CSU) promised to curb the rise in fuel prices: “I think that once the two-euro barrier is reached, politicians will have to intervene.” He proposed lowering fuel taxes. The problem, however, is the climate package. De facto, it forces the German government to raise petrol and diesel prices.
