• FairfuelUK • Fuel Duty • Petrol • Diesel • Prices • Budget • Howard Cox • Quentin Willson 

Today it was announced by Experian Catalist that the average price of a litre of unleaded petrol hit 140.20 pence.  No surprises to most of us, but the Chancellor could have done something to prevent this happening.  And this is still not including the planned 3p increase to be added in August. 


Quentin Willson, national spokesman for FairFuelUK said,"I told the Chancellor this would happen. Oil prices are going up and up and up. Mr Osborne could have acted to cushion the UK economy but he ignoredour warnings and the desperate please of the tens of millions of people who can’t cope with the highest cost of petrol and diesel ever seen in this country”


Howard Cox, FairFuelUK's communications spokesman said,"Since the Budget, the FairFuelUK website has been bombarded by tens of thousands of supporters who are telling us they will be completely crippled by the current high cost of petrol and diesel, many small businesses are forecasting insolvency, supporters’ families will not be able to afford to get to work and have any money left just to exist. How could the Chancellor ignore FairFuelUK’s pre-Budget research of using a cut in fuel duty to stimulate the economy? It beggars belief!”

Why not take part in our web poll and let us know how you have fared following the Budget this week. It can be found on our home page

Quentin Willson, national spokesman for FairFuelUK said, "The Government has turned its back on families and businesses all across the country. Three quarters of the electorate who want lower fuel prices. It ignores the threat of rising global oil prices

• YouGov • Poll • Quentin Willson • Peter Carroll • fairFuelUK • Fair Fuel • Budget • George Osborne • Fuel Duty 

FairFuelUK has welcomed the findings of the YouGov Poll which today confirms that a cut in fuel duty is the country's top priority for tomorrows Budget. The figures show that a cut in fuel duty is seen as more important than other measures such as cutting the 50p rate or changing personal thresholds.
Quentin Willson, national spokesman for FairFuelUK said, ‘This poll is proof positive that the country is clamouring for action on petrol & diesel taxes. If you combine these findings with our research showing that the Chancellor can cut fuel duty by 2.5p per litre and be no worse off, we have the most compelling case imaginable for immediate action on fuel duty'.
Peter Carroll, founder of FairFuelUK said, ‘There's a much quoted American saying ‘It's the economy - stupid'
