An un kept promise by Canary Islands Government to reduce the tax on fuel by 30% from Jan 2008 has Taxi drivers up in arms.

Jose Luzardo, president of the Taxi drivers Association, claims the situation is reaching the point where drivers were actually losing money.

The taxi driver’s representatives will have a meeting with government officials on 11th June, in the hope of finding a solution to the problem. If no solution is found then strike action will be called.
