Florence, November 4, 2021 – If expensive gasoline was becoming a problem with the arrival of October, the beginning of November certified a situation that could soon become unsustainable. The All Saints bridge, in fact, has brought a further increase in the price of fuel, with a curve that continues to rise and could reach prices never seen before. In fact, gasoline is approaching the threshold of two euros per liter, which would be a negative record, and would weigh heavily on citizens’ pockets. According to Codaconsin fact, with the current price increases, Italian families could spend over 440 euros more per year just for fuel, bringing an already heavily damaged economy to its knees. The first to suffer from this situation are the gas station attendants, who see the number of customers continuing to drop.
“These price increases are exaggerated, above all because there is no real reason to justify them – says Salvatore Chiaracane, of the Cs Petroli in Piazza Alberti. Over 70% of the price is made from old excise duties, without those the price would be much more reasonable for everyone. Not to mention the margin for us gas stations, which is very low. “” People complain a lot – says Loris Maci, from Agip in Viale De Amicis -. There are no logical reasons for this surge in prices, we also do not know how to do and what to say to customers. “” Everyone lives badly at these increases – explains Andrea Rossi, of Timber in Viale Fanti -. People don’t get gas anymore unless absolutely necessary, try to run for cover. Fewer and fewer people fill up, it’s getting really difficult. ”
Con i new pricesIn fact, it is less and less rare to find long queues for the few petrol stations who still manage to keep prices low, or at least slightly cheaper than the others. It is no coincidence that the Florentine ‘Petrol Valley’, between the Two Roads and Galluzzo, continues to be one of the most besieged areas by those who also prefer to extend the road in order to save money. At the moment in Florence there are still distributors that manage to keep fuel below the national threshold, and of course they are the most popular. As for petrol, the cheapest are the Tamoil in viale Nenni with 1,490 euros / liter and the Q8 of the two roads with 1,659 euros / liter. The cheapest diesel in town, on the other hand, is that of Soffiano’s Tamoil at 1,490 euros / liter. The situation of methane is improving, which continues to be at a higher threshold before the initial price increases, when it had exceeded two euros per kilo, given that now the cheapest distributor is that of Beyfin I Rossi at 1,699 euros / kg. Another sector that is experiencing these continuous increases in fuel prices with extreme difficulty is that of wheeled transport, forced to grit its teeth between ever higher prices and continuous difficulties. “Salt the price of fuel, but no one thinks of hauliers, who have been abandoned and forced to work more and more – explains Maurizio Battiston, president Cna Fita freight transport Florence -. Our sector was in severe crisis before this price increase, now I’m afraid that many companies will be forced to close or halve their jobs. There will be a regional meeting on Saturday, and I have personally decided that I will ask for the work to be stopped until there are answers and concrete help. I don’t want to block the roads, but we can’t go on like this. “
