Study explores impact of changing gasoline and diesel taxes in Europe

Diesel is currently taxed at a lower level than gasoline in Europe; however, since 2011 the EC has been considering reversing that situation by making energy taxes systematically reflect the CO 2 performance of the energy product. As on a volumetric basis, diesel contains more carbon than gasoline, the tax on diesel fuel would increase. A scheme including a decreased gasoline tax could bring about an increase in CO 2 emissions.
