(Bloomberg) — Germany’s ruling coalition agreed on a second package of measures to ease the burden on businesses and households from rising energy prices including a temporary reduction in the price of fuel.
The government will cut the tax on fuel for three months by 30 euro cents ($0.33) for gasoline and 14 cents for diesel, Finance Minister Christian Lindner told reporters in Berlin. Taxpayers will also receive a one-off payment of 300 euros, he added.
