The loss-making sale of fuel has barely been announced before it is already causing concern. As evidenced by Francis Pousse, president of the service stations and new energies branch of the Mobilians union, on BFMTV. The latter evokes a measure “absolutely impossible” and goes even further:
“It is a disaster.” “The net margin of a gas station is one to two cents, so you understand that we cannot [rivaliser] with periods of cost prices and even less with selling at a loss.”
This even though the sale of fuel represents “between 20 and 60% of the gross margin” from an independent service station. He thinks it will “aggravate” the situation in service stations, especially in those faced with the electrification of the vehicle fleet.
Reason why the representative of the Mobilians union is waiting for a gesture from the government. While he will speak with Bruno the Mayor this Monday afternoon, he “sees no other solutions than to provide compensation”.
40 Million Motorists are also campaigning for a gesture from the government
Words which are particularly similar to those of 40 Million Motorists. The association recalls in a press release that “this measure does not provide a solution to the financial problems of motorists”.
She therefore calls for a change in taxation on fuels. This by reducing the tax pressure on road fuels. To do this, we must lower the VAT rate to 5.5% instead of 20%, as proposed in particular by the National Rally. The project is also to establish a cape TICPE.
Especially since the State receives a tax overpayment, according to 40MA. A “hypocrisy of the government, which has been reaping a tax overpayment for many months thanks to rising prices”. Philippe Nozière, president of the association, explains:
“The one who earns the most money is always the State, thanks to the particularly heavy tax system which weighs on road fuels (…) the more the price of a barrel increases, the more the State gains. ‘money. So for 2 years, the State has been overpaying compared to what was included in the budget, but refusing to return part of this money to motorists.”

To sum up
Barely announced, the bill allowing fuel to be sold at a loss for six months from December is causing concern. Independent service stations could suffer. This pushes some organizations to continue to ask for help from the government.
