Rev Up the Government

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Go to the site that the Government tried to hush up. Register and show your support for fixing Aucklands roads.

The Employers and Manufacturers have provided this rather telling and in-depth detail on the state of Aucklands roads.

My favourite page is the one entitled Petrol Tax: Highway Robbery.

You can see from their figures that almost ½ of the cost of petrol is made up of tax.

And Labour continues to sock us with following Tax increases announced since 1999:

2001-July Crown Revenue Petroleum Excise Tax 0.70 cents/l
2002-March Moving Forward Package 4.20 cents/l
2003-April ACC Levy Increase 2.78 cents/l

2005-April Investing for Growth 5.00 cents/l

2005-July ACC Levy Increase 0.70 cents/l

Future increases that have been announced:

Annual CPI indexation of NLTF Excise duty 0.50 to 0.75 cents/l

Petroleum Fuels Monitoring levy increase 0.70 to 1.00 cents/l


Carbon Tax 4.00 cents/litre
