My fuel costs are beyond a joke. I take my son-in-law to work 5 out of 7 days driving 21 miles there and 21 miles home. Then I take my 2 grand-daughters to school another 18 miles there and 18 miles home to do the same trip again at 3 pm to collect them! We stay in the North Highlands of Scotland and have no public transport, well not at the right times or going to the right places!! My fuel costs me approx. £400 a month and I've only a 1600 Escort!! Old car maybe but still getting good mileage from her and reliability!! As a state pensioner, heading to being disabled, my car is vital to me for every day as I can't shop without travelling 13 miles to the nearest supermarket and I can't carry bags, so train would be no good for me!! I can't get DLA because they don't count not being able to carry shopping!! Which is silly as I walk with a stick and some days can't go out as my arms are sore so can't use my stick!! A drop in fuel duty and road tax would be such a blessing!!
my children who are now grown up live 200miles away i now have a little grand daughther
WHEN PETROL AND DIESEL GIVES WAY TO BATTERY AND FUEL CELL TECHNOLOGY- HOW WILL THE TREASHURY MAKE UP THE SHORTFALL IN REVENUE?
Why is it your looking for a 2.5p reduction on a 3p increase when fuel has risen in the last 2 weeks what is your next move if you dont succeed will you continue to lobby when you know the Government isnt listening, we have people living in rural areas which fuel is sitting at £1.57 and the government has cut services and on the news tonight mortgage rates are going up why is the Government sitting there and letting its people suffer on average we spend more on fuel than food how much longer do we have to suffer, what people dont seem to realise is fuel has a knock on effect with everything we use from day to day so why 2.5p reduction when we want fuel down to £1.10 a ltr and the government doesnt loose out its time to make a stand no more sitting back and moaning about it weve moaned long enough if fuel isnt reduced then we will take action.
