PUMP PRICES CUT BY 5p LITRE - GUESS WHICH GOVERNMENT HAS DONE THIS? UK or FRENCH....
An amazing headline isn’t it – Government takes action to cut pump prices!
The only problem is that it refers to the FRENCH GOVERNMENT taking action to cut pump prices for FRENCH families, small businesses and the country’s economy. It’s all the more amazing when you realise that the French Government have taken this decisive action AND their diesel price is about £1.15 per litre! – far lower than ours. Many of our supporters have reported that UK pump prices have steadily risen over recent weeks and are now approaching record levels.
FairFuelUK’s central argument is that fuel taxes need to come down to help boost UK growth. We have been successful in persuading the Government to defer over 9p per litre (11p if you include VAT) of fuel taxes. However, we are redoubling our call for a CUT in fuel prices in the light of the French example.
We are asking you to urgently do 2 simple things to get the fuel price crisis back on the political agenda and help us fight for a fuel duty cut here in line with the French example…..
We need even more of our supporters to sign up to our specific calls for inquiries into the trading in, and supply of, petrol and diesel. Let’s get the Office of Fair Trading involved and lift the lid on "who is making what " at the expense of long suffering consumers and businesses. Even if you are an existing ‘signed up’ supporter on www.fairfueluk.com please add your sign up to our calls for these inquiries at http://www.fairfueluk.com/call_for_enquiry.html

FairFuelUK is fighting to get lower petrol & diesel prices. They are urging the UK Government to follow the example of the French Government and CUT fuel taxes.

It’s free to sign up and it only takes about 20 seconds. Please sign up at www.fairfueluk.com and then pass this message on to as many family, friends, contacts, customers, suppliers, staff, colleagues as you can. FairFuelUK is widely credited with saving us 9p of Fuel Duty rises over the last year – that’s 11p per litre when you add on the VAT. With a big show of ‘people power’, they can achieve so much more……
