Auckland Fuel Tax confirmed for July 2018

The price of fuel is set to increase by 10 cents to help fund a series of transport projects, including light rail from Auckland’s CBD to the airport.

Regional fuel tax is expected to be in place for Aucklanders by 1 July 2018.

Aucklanders can expect the change by July 1, 2018, Transport Minister Phil Twyford says.

The 1 July date would allow the Auckland council to drop its Interim Transport Levy of $114 per household – a three-year measure designed to boost transport funding ahead of new revenue.

The Auckland Mayor Phil Goff will outline his proposals for the city’s next 10-year budget on 30 November with the fuel tax being an important part of the revenue mix.
