CSU boss Söder – cheaper electricity and gasoline – economy

The boss of the CSU, Markus Söder, has called into play a reduction in VAT on gasoline in the face of the sharp rise in energy prices. “For the economy, we should introduce a capped industrial electricity price. The surtax of the law on renewable energies must be reduced to zero and the tax on electricity to the European minimum. And for gasoline, we should consider temporarily reducing VAT at the reduced rate. “Söder told the newspapers of the media group Funke. The value added tax on gasoline is 19%. The reduced rate of seven percent applies, among other things, to groceries, books and tickets for local public transport. According to Söder, you can’t just sit back and watch the prices rise before the winter cold. In order to secure the energy supply, it also makes sense to open the pipeline soon.
