Gasoline prices in the Netherlands hit record highs again

Gasoline prices in the Netherlands hit record highs again

According to the Dutch consumer advice center United Consumers, gasoline prices in the Netherlands have returned to record high levels, the effect of the government’s decision to reduce the excise tax on fuel is becoming less noticeable.

The Dutch government has previously decided to reduce the excise tax on unleaded gasoline by 17 cents per liter and on diesel fuel by 11 cents per liter from April 1. It is also planned to reduce the value-added tax on gas and electricity from July 1 to 9%.


United Consumers reports that fuel prices in the Netherlands are higher for the first time than they were before the April 1 excise tax cut.

The retail price of gasoline is currently 2.50 euros. Without tax reduction, a liter of gasoline would cost 2.67 euros. It is noted that the current cost of gasoline is below the record set in March by just over half a cent.


Diesel is also getting more expensive, but not so fast: a liter costs 2.17 euros, without a decrease – 2.28 euros.
