TotalEnergies offers a Discount of 0,12 € per liter


The oil group TotalEnergies announced on Wednesday to increase its discount on a liter of fuel from 10 to 12 cents for motorists filling up in its service stations on freeways this summer, confirming a report in the daily Le Parisien.

TotalEnergies wanted to extend the first discount, valid from February 14 to May 15. This was 10 cents per liter. However, Burno Le Maire, Minister of the Economy, deemed the proposal insufficient.

“I hope that TotalEnergies will continue this effort and, why not, increase it,” he said in an interview on RMC/BFMTV. According to the minister, “the entire effort cannot rest solely on the State”, at a time when the executive is finalizing its bill on purchasing power and a rectifying budget that provides for several measures – including the extension in August of the 18 cent fuel discount introduced on April 1.

This reduction of the group should affect about 120 service stations, according to the newspaper. A reduced number compared to the 1,150 rural stations benefiting between February and May, which had even been increased to 2,700 stations throughout the territory.

In addition to the government discount, TotalEnergies estimates that it will save 30 cents per liter for motorists filling up at its highway network stations – a saving of 15 euros for a 50-liter tank.

The energy giant stresses that its new proposal represents a 20% increase over the initial discount, and also says it plans to extend it beyond the summer, in consultation with the government. It should affect about 17 million motorists driving during the summer vacations, he says.

Oil: France calls for more production

France called on Monday for oil-producing countries to increase their production in an "exceptional manner". She pleaded for a "diversification of supplies" to Iran and Venezuela to curb the surge in pump prices caused by the war in Ukraine. "We need the producing countries to produce more in an exceptional way", the time to get through the crisis. However, "the objective of carbon neutrality remains clearly reaffirmed," said the French Presidency on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Elmau, Germany. U.S. President Joe Biden is scheduled to discuss this during his visit to Saudi Arabia in July. His French counterpart Emmanuel Macron is also "in contact" with the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salmane, as well as the new president of the United Arab Emirates, Mohammed bin Zayed, noted the Elysee.

"The negotiation on the Iranian nuclear issue is now closed as far as the nuclear issue is concerned, but it is not closed as far as the relationship between Iran and the United States is concerned on a specific issue, the U.S. terrorism-related sanctions," she said.

Soaring Prices Weigh on the U.S. Economy

Record-high prices at the pump in the United States are not only driving up bills for motorists, but also impacting many sectors of the economy, putting a strain on truckers' budgets, driving up airfares and rekindling interest in electric cars. They crossed a new threshold on Saturday, with the average price of a gallon of gasoline crossing $5 for the first time. Truckers practice austerity Lamar Buckwalter, head of a small trucking company, has raised his rates slightly. But he can not fully pass on the increase in fuel to his customers: he sees in his deliveries that consumers themselves "begin to give up small pleasures," such as the beautiful pieces of meat, he said to AFP. The last time he filled up, he spent $5.79 for each gallon of diesel, more than double what he spent a year ago. So the carrier is more careful about which routes it accepts, even if it means giving up on those that pay the least. He also plans to cut back on the little extras for his three employees, such as the usual annual picnic. Immediate dispatch of air tickets The airlines themselves are doing quite well. "It is generally said in...

Greece wants to reduce its energy consumption

As a result of the war in Ukraine, energy prices have risen sharply in Europe. This price increase has had a significant impact on many European countries. And Greece is no exception. After having tried to reduce the impact of this increase on households, the country wants to reduce its energy bill by reducing its consumption. Greece wants to reduce its energy bill Greece on Thursday urged state entities to reduce air conditioning use, install protective screens and turn off computers after hours. The objective is to contribute to the reduction of electricity consumption and to set an example for the rest of the country. Greece has been subsidizing households since September to help consumers cope with rising electricity bills amid soaring gas prices. This context is exacerbated by the war in Ukraine. Thus, the government has spent about 7 billion euros in subsidies so far. The country now plans to reduce the Greek state's energy consumption by 10% in the short term. Before increasing to at least 30 percent by 2030, government officials said at a joint press conference. Alexandra Sdoukou, Secretary General of the Ministry of Energy, states: "We all understand the importance of these simple energy saving...

Inflation threatens Green Energy

The soaring prices, starting with strategic metals, are such that they could well hinder the development of renewable energies, which until now have been driven by exponential gains in competitiveness, experts warn, calling for a response. Driven by rising freight costs and vital raw materials, the capital cost of building new solar and onshore wind capacity has risen by 15 to 25 percent between 2020 and 2022, reversing a decade of decline, the IEA calculated. Renewable electricity remains competitive with other energies, the IEA adds, but the expected continuation of higher installation costs over at least 2022 and 2023 than before Covid could complicate its acceleration. In one year, the price of cobalt has more than doubled, while from January 2021 to March 2022, nickel has gained 94%, aluminum 76%, copper 34%... Lithium has even increased by 738% over this period (compared to an annual average of +13% over the last ten years). Thus the price of photovoltaic modules, which had been divided by four in five years, rose by 16% last year. The cost of wind power has risen by 9%: offshore in particular is suffering from the additional cost of rare metals and copper, which also affects wiring...
