Not Vin.. Agostino Pio. Of the ministerial kind. The Minister on warpath has jost fobbed off complaints by the MLP and GRTU regarding the cost of diesel. It seems that, bar Bulgaria, Malta has the cheapest diesel prices in the EU. I know a bit about that one – diesel prices have just been hiked up (again) in the Duchy – there goes my pleasant gas guzzling ride. Malta also charges the minimum excise duty possible under EU rules. Well… to an ignorant blogger like me it seems like Austin Gatt’s explanation holds water… or diesel at least. Dontcha just lurv those armpits?
