Just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend travellers, Tesla has lowered Supercharger fees at some stations in several states across the US.

At the same time Tesla has also lowered Supercharger fees in several European countries, where owners have seen successive price increases in recent months.

The changes in California were spotted by Tesla enthusiast Zack (@BLKMDL3), who noted that the fees during the peak hours have dropped by as much as $0.05 per kWh.

Zack shared a photo of the West Hollywood Supercharger, showing the peak rate is now $0.47 per kWh, down from the previous $0.52 per kWh.

Other owners were quick to reply to Zack, saying they saw similar decreases at their local Superchargers. Some of the states mentioned include Florida, Georgia, New York

Zack also noted however that some stations increased their peak pricing, but in a discussion with Drive Tesla noted the increases were minimal at only $0.01 or $0.02 per kWh.

Meanwhile across the pond, Tesla has also lowered rates in several European countries.

The changes were first spotted by @tesla_adri, who shared photos of the fees at several Supercharger stations in Germany and the Netherlands, with fees dropping as much as €0.20 per kWh.

Other owners also replied after noticing a similar price drop in Sweden.

Such a drastic drop will be welcome relief for owners who have experienced some massive price increases in recent months, as much as 30%. Along with the price increases, Tesla also introduced dynamic pricing with time-of-use tiers, making peak hours covers almost the entire day from 6:00am until 10:00pm.

Owners were not happy, and Tesla apparently heard the feedback, later shrinking the peak hours to between 4:00pm and 8:00pm.
