In Today's FT:  George Osborne has ruled out any further duty cuts for motorists in next month’s Budget, in a move that risks a major confrontation with drivers and hauliers who claim record pump prices are hitting families and holding back the economy.

FairFuelUK will soon publish why Mr Osborne is making an ill informed and short term decision. A significant cut in fuel duty will stimulate the economy. It seems everyone knows that except the Government. The campaign has to help them to understand that this act in itself will increase tax revenues by growth.

Diesel is denser than petrol and contains 12% more energy per litre. It is this which ultimately determines how far you travel, not just the volume purchased. At current prices petrol works out at around 15.5 p/kWh compared with 14.5 p/kWh for diesel. On this basis diesel is actually cheaper per unit of energy. A large part of the reason for this is that duty is levied on volume. Were it to be levied on energy or carbon content then the duty on petrol would be around 9p/l lower than diesel. The higher density of diesel also has the effect of exaggerating the fuel economy, when expressed in mpg, by around 12%. It is those who use petrol that need to complain the most.
