ADAC reveals: Nowhere does refueling cost more than in Bavaria
Anyone who has to stop at the gas station on their way to work in the morning knows the self-reproaches: If I hadn’t been so comfortable last night and had filled up the gas right away, it would have been cheaper now. So there is already a perfect time to fill up the tank. But not all factors for the price are in your hands.
An evaluation by the ADAC shows how much the prices for petrol and diesel currently differ between the federal states. Included especially the Bavarians have bad cards. Compared to Germany, they fill up with the most expensive fuel and come in last place for petrol and diesel:

Lack of water makes fuel more expensive in the south
According to ADAC, the price comparison shows a strong north-south divide. While the average prices are generally lower in the northern federal states, the price increases sharply towards the south. In addition to Bavaria, consumers in Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland and Hesse are feeling the effects of this.
The automotive experts identify this as one of the reasons low water of the Rhine. It makes transporting fuels more difficult, slower and more expensive. The end of the tank discount is also coming up soon, and fuel will then become even more expensive.
