Repsol extends its aid to fuel in summer


The company points out that its margins are minimal after applying the discount which, along with the state discount, goes up to 30 cents per liter

Repsol has announced that it will maintain the additional fuel price discount it has been applying since the first anti-crisis plan was launched in March. It will do so, the company says, “in a context of tensions in international gasoline and diesel prices.” Although this measure will be adopted “in the summer”, and only on December 31, because the state bonus is fixed in the anti-crisis plan that the government has just approved.

The company continues its discount at its more than 3,300 service stations in Spain. Private customers using the free Waylet application will continue to benefit from a minimum discount of 10 cents per liter from July 1 and during the summer, “a period in which a large number of journeys are concentrated”, which is added to the 20 cents bonus that offered by the state.

The reduction in the total price at Repsol filling stations thus rises to 30 euro cents per liter of fuel, a discount that comes with other regular discounts.

On the other hand, customers going to Repsol gas stations and not using Waylet will add a 5 cent discount to the 20 cent state bonus. In these cases, the total discount remains 25 euro cents per litre.

For the group of carriers, Repsol will maintain its minimum discount of 10 euro cents per liter during the summer for professionals who have the Solred card, to which must also be added the 20 cent bonus offered by the state, thus making the minimum discount 30 euro cents per liter. litre. The offer is compatible with others that carriers and freelancers already receive through this card.

The company clarifies that these discounts are applied “at the expense of the company’s commercial margins and reduced the result of Repsol’s service station activities in Spain in April and May to zero.” And he is doing so, he points out, in an exceptional international environment of rising costs in general and enforcement of the tax burden on petrol and diesel.

After the controversy over its refining margins, Repsol recalls that any operator can buy and sell petrol and diesel on the international market. For example, once the demand in Spain is covered, Repsol exports petrol to the United States and diesel to France. “Producing fuels in Spain avoids the current uncertainty about finding supplies for alternative imports to the Russians, which affects other European countries.” For this reason, he believes, “fuel prices would be the same or higher if there were no refining activity in Spain.” And he points out: “The lack of a national refining system would have very negative effects on the trade balance and industrial employment of the country, on which some 200,000 households currently depend directly.”
