Petrol & Diesel Prices are rising again …. Help us to help you….
Dear FairFuelUK Supporter,
You’ll be aware that pump prices are ‘on the up’ once again. We’ve had messages from all across the country about this – you can see many of them on our @FairFuelUK twitter feed.
Next month, the Chancellor makes his Budget Statement. Currently, he is planning a rise in Fuel Duty of about 2p per litre to hit us later in the year. We think that’s the last thing the economy needs right now. So we need your help to persuade him to drop that rise AND to cut fuel duty to boost the economy.
Remember, with your help, we have successfully fought off EVERY such rise since we started just over 2 years ago – those rises would have totalled 9p per litre (11p per litre if you include the extra VAT that would have been charged on petrol or diesel Duty).
To help us ‘see off’ this latest planned rise and to put forward a convincing case for a Fuel Duty cut, please would you take a couple of minutes to fill out our simple ‘FairFuelUK Petrol/Diesel Poll’. The results will help us pile the pressure onto the Government & the Chancellor. Because the numbers signed up to FairFuelUK are now so large, the media also take a great interest in what you, our supporters, say in our polls. When the media takes an interest, that too helps put pressure on our MPs to listen and react.
Please do all you can to complete the poll and spread it to as many contacts as you feel able. We now number over 350,000 supporters and every extra ‘sign up’ makes our voice stronger. Over 10,000 have signed up in the last few days alone.
Over the coming weeks we’re holding a lot of meetings with our MPs and Ministers. We’ll keep you posted on how this develops….
As ever, thanks for all your help and support………
