1975. Years of uncertainty

In 1975 Franco died, and with him 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 investing in road infrastructure. 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 a hitherto unprecedented rise in oil prices that modifies all plans for transportation infrastructure. Super gasoline 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 practically disappeared for toll roads and fell sharply for the rest.
