In particular, the threat of new sanctions against Iranian oil exports by the United States was the cause of market turmoil and helped raise the price of 95-octane gasoline so strongly. This means Ulf Svahn, who is the CEO of the Swedish Petroleum and Biofuels Institute.
– It has increased the price of crude oil. The market players have already started to gain control, "he says.
There are more cars on Summer and gas prices are traditionally high at this time of the year. But it has never been this high.
According to Ulf Svahn, petrol prices of about 16 SEK are something that Swedish drivers can get used to when there are no changes.
"Should this change, both taxes must fall or the crown must be highly valued," says Svahn.
But that price should rise to 17 kr., he judges as unlikely, at least in the near future.
"Nothing points out in the short perspective," says Ulf Svahn.
