Autumn Statement: The longest Tax Freeze in history Must be Turned into a Cut

Pre-Autumn Statement releases and announcement rumours of a continuing freeze in fuel duty till April 2018 show that the Chancellor of the Exchequer in his first ‘Mini-Budget’ is undeniably listening to FairFuelUK’s overwhelming economic evidence that lower prices at the pumps are hugely beneficial to the economy.

However, following the Autumn Statement UK petrol drivers will remain the 5th most fuel taxed in the world with diesel drivers being punished more than all other countries in 1st position. (See Table) UK drivers will still pay £33bn in fuel taxes ...

Only 1 in 100 UK drivers believe that adding a pollution tax to diesel will improve the environment. With 4 out of 5 diesel drivers saying they have no choice but to drive the same mileage even with a speculative green tax added to their fuel bill. 98% of drivers believe such a tax hike would cost jobs, increase inflation and purely just raise extra cash for the Treasury. See full survey results below.

FairFuelUK has asked the new Chancellor and his Treasury Ministers to go further and be bolder than his predecessor at No 11. He needs to act positively on what all economists agree, that lower vehicle fuel costs are indeed a huge boost to the UK’s economy. 

We delivered by hand to the Treasury and to the Prime Minister’s Office a letter explaining FairFuelUK’s evidence based campaign demands of the new Chancellor are as follows:


  • Cut Fuel duty on all fuels by 3p to match, more closely those of other developed nations
     
  • Cut VAT on all fuels to 15% - to soften ...

Quentin Willson of FairFuelUK said: 'Freezing duty for a fifth year is hugely significant. The Treasury now has five years of evidence to prove that keeping fuel duty low has helped improve GDP, stimulate economic activity and actually improve tax receipts. The Chancellor knows that low transport costs have had an enormous economic benefit to the UK over the last five years.'

Howard Cox, founder of FairFuelUK said: 'our intense lobbying and campaigning hit home to the Treasury. By not hiking fuel duty Osborne has ensured that £5bn is not taken from consumer spending in this Parliament. His decision has ensured continued growth in GDP, low ...

Conclusive findings from a new CEBR Report commissioned by FairFuelUK clearly show the substantial shock that lower fuel prices have on average households in the UK. It shows any increase in fuel duty planned by the Chancellor in the Budget will set the economy back significantly. The current rate of duty, already the highest in the EU, is above the tax revenue maximising rate, subsequently there are few arguments that can be made for the return of a duty escalator in this Parliament. This punishing levy should instead, be cut to create more growth tax revenue to the Exchequer.

Seeing prices of 8.43p per litre (46 cents per US Gallon) in Michigan is economically mind-boggling for the UK motorist to grasp or experience. At this undreamed of level, State and Federal Taxes aggregate to a more UK recognised tax take of 74%. But that is where any across the pond comparison stops. How the US fuel supply chain can make any money at this price is fantasy and almost perilous in terms of commercial viability. But such local price wars are fleeting and only show the difference in motoring culture between the UK and our cousins in the US. UK retailers are constrained by ...

We promised you that we’d officially warn George Osborne against raising duty in the Autumn Statement and we have. This week Howard and I braved the rain and autumnal gales outside the Treasury to hand-deliver evidence supporting our argument that raising fuel duty - especially diesel - would damage the economy. Our closely argued letter shows that the UK has the highest fuel duty regime of any of the 56 countries in Continental Europe, that any increase in diesel duty would increase costs for hauliers which would be passed down the supply chain to the high street and consumers. And that could trigger higher inflation ...
