'Treasury data* shows that March 2013 saw the lowest level of fuel duty receipts on record and the lowest amount of fuel sold at the pumps. Quentin Willson, FairFuelUK's spokesman, said: 'this data proves the wisdom of our campaign. If consumers aren't filling up, they're not out spending on the high street either. The Treasury is losing income and the economy is suffering. HMRC needs to look at their fuel policy to stop it strangling growth and the Government needs to investigate allegations of oil price fixing now.

There is huge frustration in households and businesses across the country that our politicians cannot see that economic growth will remain a distant dream when most families are spending the greater part of their disposable income just to fill up the family car. Hundreds of thousands of businesses that rely on vans and trucks are seeing high fuel costs destroy their margins. They cannot invest for jobs and growth.
