Diesel fuel price rises and simplification of road user charges

Steven Joyce says owners of diesel cars can expect to pay more in the future under changes to the current road user charges system.

Steven Joyce also says that the government has decided not to replace the road user charges with a diesel tax, as this would “impose costs on non-transport users”.  The current system will instead be retained, simplified, modernised and purchases moved online.  Refer to this article on simplification of road user charges at Stuff.co.nz
