findcheapest gasoline : the chorus of many drivers these last months. While the discount on fuel prices given by the state was 30 euro cents per litres 1eh September to 15 November 2022it was reduced to 10 centimes from 16 November.

To 2023and this from 1eh Januaryshe will disappear quite. Like the extra 10 cents given by TotalEnergies. “Many of them are ignorant,” notes Emmanuel Lefrançois, head of gas station Total energy ofEqueurdreville-Hainneville (delegated municipality of Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, Manche).

In fact, there were barely two cars at this station during the afternoon Friday, December 30. “It’s the end of the month, people have prioritized their spending on Christmas presents. An observation noted by the manager, who in turn expects many questions from his customers on January 2. “This discount has become a habit. »

Whether in Équeurdreville-Hainneville or in Tourlavilleat the Total Access gas station, the two of them exhibition poles mention the same price : 1.68 euros for SP 95 E-10, 1.12 euros for SP 98 or even 1.83 euros for diesel. The spectators, however, were completely different.

“We can’t do it anymore!”

ONE waiting line was formed with customers well aware of this change for the new year. “I have 300 kilometers of range left, but as it will increase, I will take the lead,” says Caroline, a Cherbourgeoisie. Between back and forth in Caen to the pediatrician for her daughter and the trips to get to work, this day care provider can no longer make it financially: “We can’t do it anymore. I limit my movements as much as possible. »

The year-end holiday also rhymes holiday departures. This is the case of Abdel, a Cherbourgeois who refueled the car he rented to go skiing. For him anticipation was necessary:

I also filled up my personal car so as not to suffer the increase when I go home.

The government recently indicated that this discount will have cost eight billion euros to the state. However, these subsidies for the energy price will not be stopped definitively, as motorists with tax income of less than 14,700 euros – 2021 – will be able to benefit from a support of 100 euros from 16 January.
