Despite its goal to cut emissions by 28%, Luxembourg produced the same amount of greenhouse gases in 2007 as in 1990. The review notes that the rapid increase of CO2 emissions over the past decade is mainly due to road transport. Luxembourg’s low gasoline and diesel prices encourage ”gas pump tourism”. The review recommends that Luxembourg increase fuel taxes as part of green tax reform to bring the prices at the pump in line with neighbouring countries.
