Barry Soper: Who will make up the difference left by the Auckland Fuel Tax removal?

The Auckland Regional Fuel Tax will end on June 30, as part of the Government's 100-day action plan.

Prime Minister Chris Luxon says Aucklanders have been paying an extra $11.5 cents per litre since mid-2018- and this will save drivers money.

Mayor Wayne Brown has criticised this decision, saying this will leave a billion-dollar funding hole for transport projects over the next four years.

ZB senior political correspondent Barry Soper says the Government will either have to contribute more to Auckland- or ratepayers will have to cover the difference.
