Scheuer: Politicians have to intervene from 2 euros per liter of petrol

The still incumbent Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (CSU) wants to intervene in fuel prices of two euros or more. If the price of fuel jumps over this mark, politicians must have the strength to intervene, he told the tabloid television “Bild Live”. But “thank God” we are still a few steps away from these prices. He can obviously imagine measures for tax or commuter allowance. With a view to the general election in just under three weeks, he warned: “If there is a left-wing republic, mobility will also be more expensive.”

The Green Chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock called Scheuer’s statements an “absolute cardboard comrade debate”. “It is perfectly clear that the change in the automotive industry is taking place primarily because everything is not regulated by price, but that there is a clear exit date for the fossil combustion engine,” said Baerbock in Rostock after an election campaign. In the past few years as Minister of Transport, Scheuer had not only “sunk billions with his toll debacle, but with his idleness he also ensured that our loading station infrastructure was catastrophic across Germany,” said Baerbock.

The previous federal government has initiated a taxation of carbon dioxide. This means that gasoline and diesel have increased in price by almost 8 cents per liter at the beginning of 2021, according to the ADAC. The next stages are already foreseeable and will make fuels even more expensive.
