Excise duties on petrol, diesel and LPG will be increased again from 1 July, which means that you will pay more at the pump.
Last year, fuel prices skyrocketed after Russia decided to turn Ukraine into a battlefield. The war meant that more than 2.50 euros per liter of Euro 95 had to be paid at some gas stations.
You will pay more for this because of the increase in excise duty on petrol
The government intervened and reduced excise duties on petrol, diesel and LPG from 1 April 2022. That party is over from July 1 this year. The Dutch government therefore does not call it an increase in excise duty, but rather ‘phasing out an excise duty reduction’.

Anyone who ever stands at the pump will feel this in their wallet. The government now collects 650.71 euros per thousand liters of petrol, from 1 July that will be 789.10 euros per litre. This means that you will pay almost 14 cents more per liter of petrol.
Calculating the average fuel prices at the beginning of March, the petrol price would amount to 1.95 euros per liter of petrol. That is howling when you drive one of the most inefficient second-hand cars in the Netherlands.
You will pay that much more for diesel and LPG
The tax on diesel and LPG will also rise again. For diesel you will pay just under 10 euro cents per liter more from July. LPG will become about 6 euro cents more expensive per litre. This seems little, but that 6 euro cents means an increase of 7.2% of the current LPG price.
That is more than the 5.7% price increase for diesel. Gasoline drivers are the hardest hit with a price increase of 7.7% (calculated with the prices at the time of writing). Or they were hit the most last year, depending on how you look at it.
The government receives this amount per liter of petrol
However, more than those excise taxes go to the government’s pocket. Fuel prices consist of extracting, refining and transporting oil and gas, in order to subsequently make petrol, diesel and LPG, which also have to be transported again.
There is suddenly hope for combustion engine cars after 2035
Excise duties are added to this and then there are also costs for petrol stations to be added. Think of rent, material costs and salaries. 21% VAT is then charged on all this.
Suppose you pay 1.95 euros at the pump for a liter of petrol from this summer, then just under 1.20 euros will go directly to the Dutch state.
