The meeting of The Cabildo of Lanzarote, held on Thursday, has approved the elimination of the levy on petrol, the so-called fuel rate

The removal of this rate will start on January 1st, 2020, so as not to cause any mistakes in the current budget year.

The elimination of an unfair rate that affects all citizens has led Lanzarote to have the most expensive petrol in the Canary Islands," he explained during his speech the vice president, Jacobo Medina.

Medina said that "there is a citizen consensus on our island about the damage caused by this rate not only in terms of the cost of fuel, but also the loss of competitiveness of our companies, mainly in the transport sector.“These facts far exceed the collection benefits of this tax for the maintenance of our island roads".
