Rising fuel prices — who pays the most tax in Europe?
 

France comes in at number 8 in terms of the cost of petrol with taxes in Europe, with a liter of fuel coming in at €1.53, according to the European Commission.

However, without taxes, the price falls to the bottom half of the table, with a liter costing €0.58.

Denmark has the most expensive petrol without taxes at €0.67 per liter and with taxes, Italy has the highest prices costing €1.65 per liter.

At the other end of the scale, Poland, Bulgaria, and Romania had the cheapest petrol costs with taxes.

Netherlands, Slovenia and Czech Republic had the lowest petrol prices without taxes

Sweden has the most expensive diesel in Europe with taxes, and even without taxes, it's still the highest at €1.58 per liter.

Malta has the cheapest diesel without taxes at €0.57 per liter.

But while having among the lowest prices in the region, the cost of petrol remains an issue in Bulgaria.

Thousands took to the streets there on Sunday to protest rising fuel prices, and tax increases for older, more polluting cars.

More than 2,000 people waving national flags marched in central Sofia chanting "Mafia" and "Rubbish", frustrated with the rising costs.
