Today, the Riksdag's Finance Committee is expected to support the committee initiative based on the Moderates' proposal.

The goal is to reduce the price of diesel by SEK 5 per liter and of petrol by SEK 4 per liter.

Among other things, the initiative demands that the energy tax on diesel and petrol be reduced to the EU minimum level for three months, as well as a change in the reduction obligation.

The Left Party has received a letter in the agreement to investigate how the state will be able to compensate for future fuel price shocks, which Expressen first reported on.

The government has previously submitted a proposal for a reduced fuel tax of just over SEK 1.30.

If the Left Party now supports the opposition's committee initiative, the Moderates' proposal will pass in the Riksdag.
