The Spanish coalition government of the PSOE and Podemos will end the 20 centimos per litre discount on fuel prices on 31st December 2022 for the general public. However, road haulage, farmers and fisherman as some examples will continue to benefit.
The decision was taken on Tuesday at the Council of Ministers meeting. The removal of the discount is based on the fact that the price of petrol and diesel has fallen in recent months.
The measure was introduced at the beginning of April 2022. During the period it has been in force the measure has stopped petrol prices from breaking the two euro a litre mark over seven consecutive weeks in the summer months.
