For several weeks, fuel prices have continued to decline. Some have also reached the lowest levels since the start of the year. A relief for French motorists. But this downward trend has started to reverse.

For this Tuesday, June 18, unleaded 98 is displayed at 1.924 euros per liter on average by the specialized site Carbu.com. According to the same source, unleaded 95 is sold at 1.842 euros per liter. As for E10 and E85, the prices are respectively 1.822 and 0.861 euros per liter. Concerning diesel, it is displayed this Tuesday at 1.720 euros per liter on average, according to the same site.

Whether for diesel or gasoline, prices are up slightly compared to prices at the end of the week, but they still remain very low compared to those of previous weeks, or even months. For diesel, for example, we have to go back until July 2023 to find such low levels.

The stations which offer the cheapest fuels in France

According to The Telegram, which brings together the cheapest pumps on its site, it is the Système U station – Port-la-nouvelle (Aude) – 928, Boulevard Général de Gaulle which offers the best price for diesel this Tuesday, June 18, with 1.605 euros the liter.

Will fuel prices start to rise again?

With this drop in fuel prices, motorists do not hide their relief. “ Per month, it takes around 150 to 200 euros. It’s still felt because we’re driving, seemingly nothing. We need our cars », Explained a motorist to TF1. “ It costs me 20,000 to 25,000 euros per year », Also said a professional who uses nine vehicles for his business.

However, we must remain vigilant regarding the evolution of gasoline and diesel prices, as they could quickly start to rise again. Because, ” every year, in good weather, it’s the period when everyone takes out their car, drives a lot and, in fact, consumes a lot. This increase in demand should push products upwards. », Salomé Ruel, professor of logistics management, told TF1.
