THE NETHERLANDS - Since the introduction of higher taxes on diesel fuel, more Dutch lorry drivers appear to be filling up over the border in Belgium. The government introduced a 3 percent increase in diesel tariffs in July.
The Transport and Logistics Netherlands (TLN), says drivers holding TLN filling passes have bought two million extra litres of fuel in Belgium since the tax rise. About a fifth of major diesel users hold such passes.
