Government considering investigation into fuel prices

The Dutch Government wants an independent investigation into the rising fuel price in the Netherlands.

The competition in the sector should also be examined. A vote was past on this last night.

The vote was a joint initiative of the Freedom Party (PVV) and the Labour Party (PvDA.

They call the price increases in recent years inexplicable, because the value of the dollar has remained about the same, and oil prices have fallen.

The government parties said that motorists should pay a fair price at the pump.

The Government wants to see the results of the investigation into fuel prices before the summer this year.
