TotalEnergies has announced that it will supplement the French government’s 15 cent per litre fuel discount with a further 10 centime per litre reduction at its petrol stations. 

French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced over the weekend that from April 1 all fuel apart from E85 and heating oil would have its price cut by 15 cents per litre for all customers, and urged fuel companies to offer similar support.

“In the face of rising fuel prices, we are extending the measure of solidarity regarding fuel which we decided in mid-February,” Tweeted TotalEnergies CEO Patrick Pouyanné.

On February 9, Mr Pouyanné had announced that the company would send a €100 cheque to up to 200,000 of its customers, and that its rural petrol stations would offer a €5 discount on purchases of over 50 litres, and €2 for 20 litres for the next three months.

“From April 1, we will therefore introduce a discount of 10 cents per litre in all of our French TotalEnergies petrol stations,” he added yesterday (March 16).

This means that drivers filling up with TotalEnergies will see a total reduction of 25 cents per litre on their final fuel bill.

TotalEnergies is the first supplier to respond to the government’s appeal for support, but others may follow in the coming days.

Diesel, SP98 and SP95 prices are all currently hovering around €2 in France.
