Fuel excise goes up

9:57 am on 1 August 2012

Petrol and diesel excise taxes go up by two cents per litre today, 1 August.

The AA is calling on fuel companies not to pass on the increase, but so far Z Energy, BP and Caltex have all said they will be raising their retail prices. Mobil was unavailable for comment.

Petrol increased in price by 14 cents per litre last month after two months of falls and diesel was up 10 cents per litre.
