The CO2 tax will be raised at the turn of the year, with 45 euros to be paid for one ton of carbon dioxide in the future. This will also affect refuelling, so ARBÖ recommends filling up your car before January 1st.

Driving will be more expensive in 2024 due to climate protection measures
From January 1, 2024, a liter of diesel will be 3.7 cents more expensive, and a liter of petrol will cost 3.4 cents more, ARBÖ President Peter Rezar calculated today. However, he is concerned that there could be a rush at filling stations before New Year’s Eve.

“Wrong economic policy”: criticism from ARBÖ President
Rezar criticizes that the climate bonus, intended to compensate for the CO2 pricing, is far from sufficient to offset the additional costs. “In the current situation in Austria, with price increases and persistently high inflation, higher taxes are the wrong economic policy,” said the ARBÖ President.

In any case, fuel prices in 2023 will be significantly below the previous year’s. “While overall prices have risen by around eight percent this year, the prices for Eurosuper and diesel are almost nine percent lower on average this year than in the previous year,” the VCÖ recently calculated. What has remained the same: Eurosuper was again cheaper to fill up with than diesel in 2023.
