As oil rises & Sterling weakens Fuel Suppliers opportunistically fleece UK Drivers at the Pumps. The APPG* on Fair Fuel for UK Motorists and Hauliers calls for the introduction of a new independent watchdog to monitor fair pricing and transparency at the pumps. FairFuelUK supporters are incensed by the latest blatant rocket increases in petrol and diesel, that will impact on inflation and growth in the economy. 


FairFuelUK said: 'In the 38 days Brexit to the 1st of August wholesale fuel prices fell 5%, oil dropped 10% yet pump prices hardly moved. But in the 11 days ...

We were told that petrol prices would soar if the UK voted to leave the EU. Concerned 'experts' cited the combined threats of currency shifts, rises in the price of oil and a general economic Armageddon. But oil and fuel wholesale costs have actually fallen since the 23rd of June by 3 to 4 ppl. Prices at the pump should therefore be lower by 3p but they're not - and the only reason we at FairFuelUK can find to justify this is speculation driven by a cloak of supposed market uncertainty.


Petrol particularly is being held at artificially high levels given that the wholesale price has fallen ...

2015 Fuel Pricing Data clearly shows Supply Chain Businesses are Knowingly Profiteering from Falling Oil Prices.

A FairFuelUK extensive analysis of the trends in oil, wholesale and retail fuel prices in 2015 sourced from reputable organisations, Portland Fuel Pricing, Government Statistics and the RAC Foundation, explodes the myth that rocket and feather pricing at the pumps is circumstantial.
 
From January 2015, Sterling oil prices have fallen by 23% in 2015, whereas diesel and petrol margins (net of all taxes) have increased substantially. The graph below demonstrates this unmistakably.

It is fortuitous on the day (Tuesday) Asda announced their petrol prices dropping to 101.7p that MPs asked questions to a variety of different businesses in the supply chain in Westminster as to how pump prices are actually calculated when market influences change. But it’s also clear that today’s RAC’s claim of prices reaching £1.00 per litre before Christmas is most certainly not guaranteed to millions of UK drivers because of the opaque and unpredictable pricing strategies used by oil companies through to retailers. The APPG Meeting was arranged by the FairFuelUK Campaign.

Jason McCartney (Conservative MP for the Colne Valley) and Rob Flello ...

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 ...

Rob Flello MP-Quentin Willson-Geoff DunningAs Labour MP for Stoke on Trent South and Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Freight Transport I am proud to support the FairFuelUK campaign. The level of support the campaign has gained from the people of my city and from Members of Parliament of all parties demonstrates the importance of this issue.

 

I am fortunate to meet with many businesses in the haulage sector as Chair of the APPG for Freight Transport and the issue of fuel costs comes up consistently. They tell me in no uncertain terms that these costs prevent them from investing in new equipment, expanding their ...
