While diesel price reaches low levels, other cost factors like toll continue to rise significantly Example TOLL GERMANY: Toll threshold lowered to 7.5 tons From 1 October 2015, all trucks over 7.5 tons will have to pay a toll on all motorways and certain other major roads. Previously the tax only applied to trucks over 12 tons. An additional 250,000 vehicles are expected to be affected. The changes combined with an additional 1,000km in public highway that is subject to the toll is expected to generate an extra € 380m per year. In 2014, truck tolls generated € 4.5bn.
