The industry warns: In a little while, a liter of petrol will cost DKK 26

In 2027, the EU will begin phasing in a quota system that will make petrol and diesel significantly more expensive. The industry warns of liter prices of up to DKK 26.

Up to 26 Danish kroner.

This is what the energy industry warns that a liter of petrol could cost when the EU introduces a quota system for fuel from 2027.

The EU apologizes by saying that in this way the CO2 emissions from fossil cars will be eliminated. But there's only one group to foot the bill, and that's motorists.

And now the industry is warning that the bill could be huge. Ronny Svensson, who in Sweden is an expert in the field of company cars, predicts an absolutely insane increase in the price per litre.

And so far higher than the one we saw during the energy crisis in 2022, when the price of fuel across Europe exploded. Among other things, a liter of petrol in Denmark in the summer of that year cost over 20 kroner.

But the new set of rules from the EU will make it even worse. The new rules are called ETS 2 and will make the pricing of the allowances, which are in turn part of the climate plan 'Fit for 55', the same in all 27 member states.

– We have had discussions with representatives in the fuel industry who believe that the price can rise to up to 40 Swedish kroner per litres, says Peder Blohm Bokenhielm, spokesman for Fuel Rebellion, to Carup .

If that prediction holds true, the Danes should expect to pay around DKK 26 per litre. Perhaps even more, because the Swedes have lower taxes on petrol and diesel. At least this year and in 2025.

At home, the government expects that the first quotas, which will be introduced in 2027, will make petrol 1.09 kroner more expensive per litre. While diesel rises by DKK 1.17 per litre.

And that's not all. Because there are also several increases in the registration fee and the periodic fee on the way. Read more about it here .

Right now, however, the Technical University of Denmark, in collaboration with Sund og Bælt and a number of motorists, is proposing road pricing instead of fixed charges.

However, a Danish city cannot wait for the results of that investigation and is therefore already now trying to get motorists to use the municipality's roads. Read more about it here .
