Fair fuel victory for our campaign

This week my FairFuelUK campaign achieved victory. After months of our frantic lobbying, we torpedoed August’s planned 3p a litre duty rise.

Thanks to all your signatures and support, we persuaded everybody from Treasury ministers, Ed Balls’s Shadow Treasury team and Chief Secretary Danny Alexander, plus most MPs in the Commons, that this was the right thing to do. Credit where credit is due




Please donate to help the fight for lower fuel prices and a better deal for drivers

Hi Quentin.
I was wondering whether it was worth persuading the fuel companies to put a sign of some kind on each petrol pump giving the break down of the fuel tax / duty splitting government charge from the total price of the fuel. I think if the public could see how much they were paying every time they filled up with fuel it may embarrass the government into reducing this extortionate tax.

It would be good for people to know who the real villains are re fuel pricing and be good propaganda for the oil companies.

I think that's an excellent idea. To further this, how about a large illustrative poster displayed behind the counter of every filling station, and each customer's sales receipt included information for that purchase. The fuel companies could fund this if they wanted to.

Hi Quentin,
In the not too distant past diesel was a lot cheeper than petrol, and the price only increased in the winter months due to heating oil demand, so why are we having to pay more for diesel than petrol now winter fuel demand is over?

All the best

Brian.
