For the first time it has just cost me in excess of £100 to fill up my car with diesel. I will probably get around 650 miles from the tank. Not so long ago the same tank would have cost me £75. This is an unreal increase that the government don't seem bothered about mainly as they keep collecting the over inflated rates of tax which cripples households and busineses alike. This can't be allowed to go on.
As much as I admire your fight against excessive fuel duty, it's all just a complete and utter waste of time, the inept government are bragging that they are "helping" the british public by delaying the proposed 3p increase in duty and yet it has gone up 4.5p, and now our inept government want to go to war with Iran who I believe are a huge oil supplier, less supply = higher cost, so we're just wasting our time !!! stop the wars now !!!!!
Keep up the pressure for a reduction on Fuel Duty but also let's put presure on the Fuel companys and retailers to reduce their prices.I stongly suspect that every time the wholesale price increases, they increase their prices to maintain their percentage gross profit. This means that with the massive increases we have had recently their cash profits have soared to to a new high.
Surely the government must realise that the higher the fuel prices rise - with the knock-on effective on all other prices - the less the public have to spend, resulting in a further depression in the economy.
