Fuel tax to increase at midnight

According to the Budget 2015 press release issued today by the Government of Alberta, the fuel tax applied to gasoline and diesel will increase by four cents to 13 cents per litre effective 12:01 am March 27. The last time tax on gasoline and diesel increased in Alberta was in 1991.   This tax increase is expected to raise an additional $530 million in 2015/16.

Eligible users of the Tax Exempt Fuel User and Alberta Farm Fuel Benefit programs will continue to receive the current benefit of nine cents per litre on the purchase of marked fuel, but the government says it is not increasing the benefits provided under these programs.
