Despite the increase, service stations did not have a good month either.

Young people drive less, and with inflation, many people use public transport more or share their cars to save money,” says Córcoles.

A more cumbersome system for professionals

Only shippers, farmers and fishermen protect the 20 cents discount applied since January 1, but the way it is applied has changed. Therefore, compared to the direct discount obtained at the time of refueling, professionals must now request a refund from the Tax Office. “We positively value its maintenance, but the reality is that the system is cumbersome and we had to appoint a special person to answer all the employees’ doubts,” explains Francisco Ortiz, general secretary of the Alicante employers’ association Fetrama. . To begin with, 20 cents will be discounted only for vehicles with a maximum allowable weight of 7,500 pounds or more, while those under this category will only receive a flat amount in the coming months. In addition, to get it, you need to register with the professional diesel deduction application that the Tax Office has; this is something many carriers haven’t done yet. Likewise, this discount is only valid for companies engaged in freight transport and cannot be applied to fleets with their own transport.
