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
- Regional Fuel Tax 2018 10c
- National Fuel Tax Increase 2018 4c
- National Fuel Tax Increase 2019 4c
- National Fuel Tax Increase 2020 4c
- 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.
