Wexford TD makes call for Government to stop increasing fuel prices
A Wexford TD thinks the Government can do more to help motorists deal with spiralling fuel prices.
It’s after drivers had to fork out an extra 20 million euro because the Government failed to cut fuel as promised.
A cut in excise duty went ahead – but a cut to the National Oil Reserves Agency levy didn’t.
Independent Deputy Verona Murphy thinks the Government needs to take action to help motorists:
“There is lots they can do, they may not according to EU regulations, be able to reduce VAT further, but they can remove the said nora levy, they can remove excise duties. They can take them all away as a temporary emergency measure, which would safeguard the country’s economy and protect the most marginalized their nurse and helped keep them in their jobs.”
