A Killarney councillor has said the government needs to reduce excise on fuel, given the rise in energy prices.

Fianna Fáil's Niall Kelleher says the coalition government, which is led by his party leader, the Taoiseach Micheál Martin, needs to take action this week to ease the burden for those feeling the pinch at the pumps.

A number of service stations across the country have been charging €2 per litre for petrol and diesel.

The councillor, who is also president of the Killarney Chamber of Tourism and Commerce, says the fallout from increasing prices will continue if it’s not dealt with as a matter of urgency.
