General information

The main driver of the increase at the pump so far is the oil price, which has soared due the war in Ukraine and the sanctions against Russia. Added to this is the unusually strong demand for oil.

The main component of AdBlue is urea, which is produced by synthesizing ammonia and carbon dioxide. Gas is an important resource for this process, and gas prices are known to have sharply risen recently. Accordingly, the production of AdBlue is becoming very cost-intensive to the point of being uneconomical, which is why some producers have already curbed their production or are putting in maintenance phases. These developments have led to sharply rising AdBlue prices in some countries. Nevertheless, AdBlue stocks are currently still sufficient. It could happen that a station runs out for a very short period.

The reason for the particularly large jump in the price of diesel lies in the special behaviour of homeowners: Many heating oil users fear supply bottlenecks due to the war between Russia and Ukraine and anticyclical fill their tanks despite the start of spring. In addition, many oil traders are boycotting Russian oil, resulting in an artificial shortage on the market on top.
