Petrol prices in Italy

I suppose you have heard about it: the petrol prices in Italy are higher than in Austria, etc.

During the Russia Ukraine war and also before in 2012 the price for petrol in Italy has exceeded the 2 EUR / liter limit (of course this petrol price record was reached during the peak holiday season).

In Italy petrol has been often a little bit more expensive, but now the price of petrol is much higher compared to some other countries.

We have compared the price of petrol between Italy and Austria.

The price of petrol in Italy is about 0.20 EUR / liter more expensive, which corresponds with an extra cost of 10 EUR to fill up a 50 liter tank.

In addition you must calculate some extra money for the high motorway toll in Italy.

High petrol prices in Italy - where you can tank cheap in Italy?

The main reason for the high price of petrol in Italy is the high national debt. By use of the petrol tax the deficit should be reduced. In addition, if the price of crude oil is high, the fuel becomes more and more expensive.

In 2012 in Italy a full tank was around 20 EUR more expensive than in the year before, so the fuel consumption in Italy decreased about 10%. In addition more and more Italians will refuel their car in Carinthia, Tyrol, Switzerland and Slovenia.

Due to the high price of petrol in Italy raises the question of where you can tank up in Italy at the best price.

Here you can find our tips to save money:

  • Tank up your car before you cross the border to Italy, for example in Austria (e.g. petrol station at “Innsbruck Ost” before you take the Brenner motorway)
  • Refuel in the customs enclave Samnaun (Switzerland) before entering South Tyrol
  • Refuel in Livigno (lowest fuel prices of Italy !)
  • Avoid motorway service stations – the petrol price at Italian motorway gas stations reached records of over 2.20 EUR / liter during the Russia Ukraine war and a few years before in the summer of 2012 also above 2 EUR / liter !!
  • Take advantage of self-service petrol pumps (the price of petrol is cheaper if there is no staff, eg after 8 p.m. and on Sundays)
  • In Liguria and Tuscany the petrol prices are often the highest in Italy – you can tank cheaper in other regions, for example in Piemonte
