Good news, the price of a liter of superethanol costs a little less than yesterday this Wednesday, January 18. But it still remains much less attractive than it has been in the past…
Let it be said, if you have opted for a Flexifuel model or if you have affixed a box to your vehicle so that it can accept superethanol in addition to unleaded, this with the idea of saving fuel is always a good idea. It remains, and by quite a distance, one of the cheapest fuels in France. However, LPG is now ahead in terms of attractiveness with nearly 14 cents less at the pump. And it is clear that the prices of E85 have risen sharply in the space of some time…
What price for E85 on average today?
The price of a liter of E85 fell by €0.015 this Wednesday, January 18 compared to yesterday and rose to €1.129. That’s good, but that’s forgetting that it was trading at €0.876 a month earlier, or some 25 cents less. The end of the pump discount of 10 cents since the beginning of the year does not explain everything. Note, however, that some distributors were sometimes more generous and could offer an additional 10 cents. On average, by withdrawing government aid and that of the brands which disappeared on January 1, the increase should be contained to around 15 cents. With precisely 0.253 € more, it is therefore 10 cents more than expected. When compared with prices on January 18, 2022, before the government fuel rebate was introduced, superethanol even jumped 37 cents. A situation which is quite easily explained insofar as consumers were still protected at that time by decisions taken in 2021.
