Published Last updated

Fuel prices in France are rising with many locations reaching the TotalEnergies limit of €1.99 per litre.

The cost of the fuel - whether petrol or diesel - itself only comprises 39% of the price paid at the pump, with an added 11.5% for distribution costs.

The other 49.5% are VAT (around 10% of total price), TICPE – a domestic tax on energy consumption (around 32.5%) – and its associated VAT (around 7%).
