FairFuelUK, the Nationally Recognised Award Winning Campaign fighting for lower petrol & diesel prices, is widely accredited with stopping £30 billion of taxes being levied on over 32 million road users, businesses & the haulage industry in this Parliament.
Since the beginning of 2011 the FairFuelUK Campaign thanks to your support has been credited with stopping all fuel duty increases that were planned in this Parliament. May 2014 marked a historic victory for the FairFuelUK Campaign. Finally the Government admitted what FairFuelUK with your support has been telling them for the last 3 years - low fuel duty helps the wider economy. The Treasury said that GDP will rise by 0.5% because by not introducing Labour's previously planned fuel escalators, means drivers have more to spend on other things. Without motoring journalist Quentin Willson and FairFuelUK's co-founder Howard Cox and their intense campaigning, petrol and diesel would now have been £1.60 & 1.65 respectively. They lobbied Treasury officials, ministers and MPs using economic reports from the highly respected NIESR that proved conclusively that lowering duty creates jobs, reduces inflation and raises GDP. In 2014 we've enjoyed the lowest stable prices at the pumps for more than 3 years. The Treasury cannot go back on this huge policy change now they have had their FairFuelUK initiated wake-up call on common sense motoring taxation. High-up politicos in the Tory party have even privately told FairFuelUK that when the Coalition came to power in 2010 they had no plans to suspend 13p of Labour’s planned fuel duty rises. It's only because of the pressure from you through the campaign that we now have this historic tax U-turn. This was our victory, not the Government's.
The Government still takes over 60% in tax when we fill up at the pumps, we have the highest fuel duty levels in the EU and the cost of fuel directly impacts adversely on the cost of living, investment, jobs and running businesses. We will be continuing to fight the FairFuelUK Campaign on these fronts
