Shocks, temperature variations and wear have an impact on tires. A deflated tire will require more fuel to run properly. Take advantage of the pump to check the pressure of your tires, ideally before driving (when your car has been stationary for several hours)

According to Le Parisien, which based itself on data from the Ministry of Ecological Transition, the price of diesel per liter increases by 8% when you are on the highway and that of unleaded 95 + E10 by 6.6%.
