– The price of diesel continued to fall between April 26 and May 3, while for unleaded, a decline began.

1,929 euros at Relais Bonnequins TotalEnergies Access, 1,916 euros at Leclerc, this Monday, May 6… In around ten years, you will perhaps no longer have to wander the streets of your good town of Gennevilliers, in Hauts-de -Seine, driving “Titine”, looking for the service station that sells the liter of Super SP95-E10 at the lowest price, or, more precisely, the cheapest. There are in fact ten years left before the European deadline of 2035, when 100% of new cars must be electric.

A deadline that the Minister of the Economy did not fail to remind of on the occasion of the signing, this Monday, May 6, of the 2024-2027 sector contract between the automobile industry and the government. The opportunity, for Bruno Le Maire, to reaffirm the “resolute choice of electric car” for France. And to drive the point home: “To persist in the thermal vehicle, as certain political groups propose, is to be tied hand and foot” with “oil producing countries”.

A link between oil and fuels which, in terms of prices, has however turned to the advantage of motorists over the past week. According to data published this Monday by the Ministry of Ecological Transition, the price of diesel fell by 1.2 cents between Friday April 26 and Friday May 3, falling to 1.7399 euros on average. And that of unleaded 95-10 fell by 0.3 cents in the same interval, to 1.9009 euros per liter.

These are welcome developments after the regular rise in fuel prices since the start of the year, and can be attributed to the price of a barrel of Brent which itself fell by 1.1 dollars between April 26 and May 3, at $87. The consequence of the publication of the latest weekly report from the United States Energy Information Administration, according to which American commercial crude oil stocks jumped more than expected, to their highest level June 2023.
