David Parker has announced that he will be raising the fuel tax by 14c per litre, only months after having last hiked taxes on fuel by 29c per litre.
This regressive tax disproportionately hurts poor and rural households. Kiwis who are already struggling under this Government’s cost-of-living crisis will once again be hit even harder, as David Parker’s cash grab raises the cost of essential travel and pushes up the prices of food in our supermarkets.
This Government doesn’t seem to understand quite how difficult things are for Kiwis right now, so it’s about time we let them know.
