Government relieves fuel tax

According to statements made to TVI24 last Friday, the minister justifies this level by considering it to be the average monthly consumption pattern of the Portuguese and with the high financial impact of this measure to the state coffers.

The expected return is in the order of 133 million euros, and, according to the latest public news, it is 50 million euros above the amount already accumulated by the Portuguese with the IVAucher referring only to the catering, accommodation and culture sectors.
