STOP PRESS: May 2014 marked a historic victory for the FairFuelUK Campaign. Finally the Government admitted what FairFuelUK with your support has been telling them for the last 3 years - low fuel duty helps the wider economy. The Treasury said that GDP will rise by 0.5% because by not introducing Labour's previously planned fuel escalators, means drivers have more to spend on other things. Without motoring journalist Quentin Willson and FairFuelUK's co-founder Howard Cox and their intense campaigning, petrol and diesel would now have been £1.60 & 1.65 respectively. They lobbied Treasury officials, ministers and MPs using economic reports from the highly respected NIESR that proved conclusively that lowering duty creates jobs, reduces inflation and raises GDP.  In 2014 we've enjoyed the lowest stable prices at the pumps for more than 3 years. The Treasury cannot go back on this huge policy change now they have had their FairFuelUK initiated wake-up call on common sense motoring taxation. High-up politicos in the Tory party have even privately told FairFuelUK that when the Coalition came to power in 2010 they had no plans to suspend 13p of Labour’s planned fuel duty rises. It's only because of the pressure from you through the campaign that we now have this historic tax U-turn.

Treasury finally admits that cutting fuel duty is good for the UK economy


This was our victory, not the Government's. So to all our backers and supporters of FairFuelUK and those MPs who made it possible, well done. BUT we'll not resting on our laurels, we’ll be keeping up the pressure for a real duty cut before next year's Budget and General Election. And that’s where we still need your help.

Background


Since the beginning of 2011 the FairFuelUK Campaign thanks to your support has been credited with stopping all fuel duty increases that were planned in this Parliament.  


In March 2011, FairFuelUK even won a 1p reduction too. Fuel prices at the pumps would have been 16 pence per litre higher without this campaign. That's a real saving for an average sized car of £8 per fill-up.


*Mr Osborne has listened to your voice again via FairFuelUK working behind the scenes and he announced at the Tory Party Conference, in the Autumn Statement and March 2014 Budget, that there will be no more Fuel Duty rises in the life of this Parliament. However this freeze is only promised if the Government can afford it.


The Government still takes over 60% in tax when we fill up at the pumps, we have the highest fuel duty levels in the EU and the cost of fuel directly impacts adversely on the cost of living, investment, jobs and running businesses.

Campaign Objectives


  • Stop any Fuel Duty Rises in this Parliament. *The Campaign has achieved this objective, but the Government could still go back on their promise of a freeze in fuel duty till 2015

  • Go further and fight to Cut Fuel Duty significantly for the benefit of economic growth and what the whole nation wants – Convince the Govt to recognise that by sensibly controlling fuel duty, it is a growth stimulus not just a Treasury cash cow

  • Bring UK petrol and diesel to European Parity in terms of fuel pricing and taxation

  • Actively demand and support the inquiries into fuel pricing transparency and oil price speculation.

  • Propose a better mechanism that is a fairer way to tax all vehicle fuels for the benefit of the economy and hard pressed road user
