25 cents a litre more

The Herald reports:

Auckland drivers are likely to pay about 15c a litre more at the petrol pump in the coming weeks with a double whammy from Auckland Council and the Government.

The council’s regional fuel tax of 11.5 cents a litre is due to come into effect on July 1.

Weeks later, the Government looks set to increase the fuel excise tax nationwide by between 3c a litre and 4c.

It’s 15 cents a litre more for now but will reach 25 cents a litre. You have

  1. Regional Fuel Tax 2018 10c
  2. National Fuel Tax Increase 2018 4c
  3. National Fuel Tax Increase 2019 4c
  4. National Fuel Tax Increase 2020 4c
  5. GST on 22c = 3.3c

Total = 25.3c

If you fill up the car every week with 50 litres then the extra cost will be around $650 a year.
