Diesel too has become extremely expensive. Starting Tuesday the maximum price for a litre of diesel rises to 1 euro 44,3.
The price hike is the result of the rise of oil on international markets. The oil price has come under pressure as a result of the uprisings across the Moslem World. Belgium's outgoing Federal Government is looking at ways of reining in price increases. One option is to lower excise duty on petrol and diesel.
