Gasoline and diesel cost more than ever at gas stations. Are you dependent on the car and now you are worried about finances? Then write to us!
The prices of gasoline and diesel have risen to more than 2.20 euros as a result of the war in Ukraine. Some politicians are already demanding that the federal government intervene, for example, by lowering fuel taxes or paying a mobility bonus to all citizens.
But not everyone with a car is affected equally by high fuel prices. Some use their car only on rare occasions, for example, to go shopping on the weekend or for an excursion. Some can switch to cycling or public transportation without wasting much time. And some people have to drive to work, but they earn well. Then fuel prices hurt, but they don’t immediately mean you have to think about alternatives to the car or have existential concerns.
The price explosion especially affects those people who have low incomes but who depend on the car to carry out their daily lives. Especially since the energy crisis has also made heating more expensive. If food becomes increasingly expensive due to inflation and rents in metropolitan areas have been rising for years, money can quickly become tight.
