The European Commission has decided to refer Italy to the Court of Justice of the EU for failing to apply the national excise duty rate on petrol and diesel purchased by motorists resident in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region.

Currently, the Italian authorities grant a price reduction on motor fuel to motorists that reside in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region. The Commission considers this to be a reduction of excise duties on diesel and petrol used as motor fuel, posing an obstacle to the proper functioning of the EU internal market and infringing EU rules.
