I don’t mind making money. Not at all. But I do wonder why, for example, the supermarket chains have made big profits in the more than two years of Corona, but only a few days after the start of the terrible Ukraine war and have been coming up with new price increases week after week since then.
I also wonder why the tank discount is not passed on in full. But you hear sentences like: “First the petrol bought at more expensive prices has to be sold.” Are you crazy? When prices went up to crazy heights a few weeks ago, was it said: “We have to sell the fuel bought at lower prices first”? Of course not. Profits can also be made with the cent amounts that are not passed on to us motorists. Around 100 million liters are filled up here every day.
Economics Monika Schnitzer fears that mineral oil companies could make significant profits from the energy tax reduction despite falling prices. “Based on past experience, especially with the 2020 VAT reduction, I think the risk is high.” So: Sell us cheaper fuel and don’t be stupid!
