Govt to end Auckland fuel tax - residents wonder the cost

From Checkpoint, 5:48 pm on 9 February 2024

Aucklanders might soon be saving more money at the petrol pump, but some residents are wondering at what cost.

The Government will end the city's regional fuel tax in June, saving drivers eleven and a half cents per litre, or between five and ten dollars on each full tank.

However, residents in East Auckland and the North Shore worry that if the tax is scrapped there'll be less money for infrastructure upgrades.
