1975. Years of uncertainty

In 1975 Franco dies, and with it the dictatorship imposed since the end of the civil war. This event produces a readjustment of the entire national policy, which of course affects the roads and not in a very positive way. The governments of the Monarchy have too many problems to invest in road infrastructures. Above all, because the new situation of political uncertainty is compounded by an international economic event: the oil crisis, which began in 1973 with the Arab-Israeli war on Yom Kippur. The crisis reaches our country with an unprecedented rise in oil prices that modifies all transport infrastructure plans. Super gas multiplies its price by 6.80 and normal by 7.56, diesel by 7.83. All of this is reflected in a drop in investments, which disappear practically for toll roads and decrease a lot in the rest.
