The price in Belgium will go down tomorrow, according to an announcement by a government agency:

http://www.lalibre.be/economie/actua...ere-mardi.html

So, a general question: obviously there's some degree of regulation in Belgium. Do other European countries do that too? And are they setting maximums, minimums, a range, the exact price...?

There is regulation in a sense that taxes are about 2/3 to 3/4th of the fuel price.

But in this case it's not tax, but just the oil price fluctuation on the international market. Apparently, that's media-worthy news in Wallonia.

At Luxembourg (L) and Slovenia (SLO) the price is everywhere the same for some days or 2 weeks like in Slovenia (SLO)

So the announcement is coming from "the Energy Administration of the Federal Public Service/Economy" just because they monitor it? Still, the fact that it's happening tomorrow (together with the fact that this was coming from the government) implied to me that they were actually setting the price.

I also see items regularly about the price of bread.

EDIT: a little research:
"The DG Energy calculates the maximum prices of certain petroleum products via the programme contract" (http://economie.fgov.be/en/consumers...le_energy_Oil/)

So what, I ask myself, is the programme contract?
http://www.petrolfed.be/french/questions/faq_CPR.htm / http://www.petrolfed.be/dutch/faq/faq_PO.htm
http://economie.fgov.be/fr/modules/p...ces_fr_002.jsp
http://economie.fgov.be/fr/binaries/...m326-63739.pdf

If I'm understanding all this correctly, the government's setting maximums (according to 27 pages of rules saying how they're supposed to follow market criteria).

Mainly, close to border petrol/gas stations display prices in both currencies.

I paid by cash (Euro) on that station. Interestingly, they did not take euro coins at all, notes only. Eventually, I paid 1.60 euros

Tesco, they were doing in-store offers giving up to 50p per litre discount! Saved me around £30 on a full tank!

Refueled (diesel) yesterday at ENI station for 1.590 €/l. This is the weekend price; during normal weekdays prices jump up to 1.750 €/l. Net result? Stations deserted during weekdays and packed like summer seaside during weekends.

In Spain there is a regional tax for fuel that can be up to 6 cts/l.

My region (Aragon), Basque country and Canary Islands do not use that tax.

Coming from a region with that tax I remember I was with no fuel... but my region was ahead. I calculate and could arrive to the first petrol station. That means 3,2 EUR per tank just only filling here or 20 km ahead.

Later I went to Canary Islands. They have a special status for taxes and fuel was 23 cents cheaper than in my region. Everyone had always the picture about those islands with a terribly cheap fuel prices.

In fact now... for almost all the regions, 29 cents less if going to Canary islands (obviously can be used only there except if you take a two days ferry) but... 6 cents less if going to Basque country or Aragon.

Aragon is in the middle of a lot of routes for trucks and buses. Basque country has to be crossed to go eastern France, or to go almost everywhere in central Europe if being in the north of the country.


Can you calculate how many trucks and buses try to take fuel in these two regions just because 6 cents cheaper?

Strange. Hawaii (so I hear - I've never been there) has prices far higher than the rest of the U.S.
