It would be a foolish government who increased the cost of living with so many unemployed.

You would think they would give the population a break this year on it.

Budget 2021 - Confirmation of proposed changes with regards to home heating fuels

Carbon tax
The carbon tax on fuel will increase by €7.50 from €26 per tonne to €33.50 per tonne. The increase will apply to auto fuels from midnight on 13 October 2020 and to solid fuels from May 2021. See 'Environment' below for more details.

Environment and climate > Carbon tax

Carbon tax has been increased by €7.50 per tonne, from €26 per tonne to €33.50 per tonne. This applies to auto fuels from midnight on 13 October 2020.

The carbon tax increase will apply to all other fuels (including household fuels) on 1 May 2021.

Carbon tax will increase by €7.50 every year until 2029 and then by €6.50 in 2030, bringing carbon tax to €100 per tonne by 2030. €100 million of the carbon tax revenue collected will be invested in increasing the energy efficiency of our homes, including expanding the Warmer Homes Scheme and providing for new energy efficiency schemes such as the National Home Retrofit Scheme. A new National Retrofit Office will be established in the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI).

The tables below show the estimated price increases on commonly-used fuels:

Fuel used for your vehicle /Unit / Increased cost, €

Petrol 60 litre fill 1.30
Auto Diesel 60 litre fill 1.51

Fuel used for your home / Unit / Increased cost

Kerosene (Heating) 900 litre fill 19.51
Coal 40 kg bag 0.90
Peat briquettes 12.5kg bale 0.20
Gas (Heating) 11,000 kwh 16.98

Fuel Allowance
The Fuel Allowance will increase by €3.50 per week from €24.50 to €28 (from January 2021).

This was signed off by the previous government. The only ones making noise about this are Sulphur Fein and the usual mad capped healy Rae type independents. To put it in context it's €20 on a tank of oil. Having a bit of foresight and willingness to bargain people will easily save this and more on their next oil bill.

Regressive Taxes like this are unfair , Heating your home is a basic necessity , A guy on Minimum wage having to pay the same as a property developer is just simply unfair.

It's not bad compared to petrol

About €165 of a 1,000 litre €439 fill goes to revenue.

On petrol about €900 of a 1,000 litre €1300 tank goes to revenue.
