In a recent email update from FairFuelUK it appears that the Governments plan to increase petrol & diesel prices by adding a massive 16p a gallon (3p/litre fuel duty & VAT combined) look set to go ahead.

Petrol & diesel prices are already at record levels and are still rising.  We know that this increase will push many families and businesses over the edge.

What makes this situation even more frustrating, is that we have supplied the Prime Minister, the Chancellor and every MP with independent research that shows that CUTTING fuel taxes would not actually cost the Government any revenue.  Even a modest cut of 2.5p per litre would create 175,000 new jobs and boost the economy by 0.33%.  The taxes generated from this economic growth would balance out any lost revenue from the fuel duty cut.

We have studied the replies from MPs to our earlier emails and it’s clear that our central campaign message is not getting through. Given the seriousness of the fuel price scandal, and the little time left before the Budget, we have to do all we can to make sure that our voice is heard.
