A more important reason is the Trump factor: The trade dispute between the United States and China seems to be stalled, hopes for a speedy solution have been dashed.

The participants in the market is the fear of a slowing world economy, with negative consequences for the demand. Also, many global economic data pointed to last in this direction.

The demand is rising...

But the financial and commodity markets business, especially a days, so motorists should not rejoice too soon. The mood can turn at any time, for example, if it should come to a solution in the customs conflict. And Union-Investment expert, Holzer expects to see again anyway, rise significantly in price in the summer: in addition to the increase in the Demand by the "Driving Season" is a reason "the shortage of supply, among other things, because the US exemptions for Iranian Oil are running".

by the sanctions tightened Supply of oil, it is likely to remain, according to Holzer, first of all, "because there is currently no country that is able to compensate for supply failures and wants". Saudi Arabia, the largest oil exporter in the world, could fill the gap, although, seem to be not ready, the evaluation of the skilled in the art.

... the offer to support rather not

Because the price of Oil is always a political price, the major players in the market have their own interests to pursue: the Oil price, had been agreed by the members of the oil cartel Opec and Russia are on a conveyor brake.

Also, the foreign exchange market plays the price development, therefore, an important role.

"fuel prices are market prices"

And how come the gas prices, anyway? Fuel prices were at market prices, one learns on the subject on the Website of the ADAC. "In the end of the competition decides about the height of the concrete price at the gas station." For all who believe in the blessing results in a price formation on supply and demand, does that sound like a good news.

Unfortunately, the reality looks a bit different: In a sector inquiry in 2011, the Federal cartel office came to the conclusion that "the five large oil companies BP (Aral), Jet, ExxonMobil (Esso), Total and Shell do not competing with one another, and thus to the gas station markets, a dominant oligopoly form".

Therefore, the market transparency unit for fuels will also be established to make it possible to obtain information about the current fuel prices. After all, the consumer does not have to watch now in amazement as the price rises or falls. He can, as he recommends ADAC, by App, compare prices and where to refuel, where it is at least relatively cheap.
