Quentin Willson, leader of FairFuelUK is calling on the Government to investigate why petrol and diesel pump prices have barely come down when Oil prices have plummeted in recent weeks. Mr Willson said, ‘The moment that Oil prices go up, the pump price rockets! When the Oil price falls, the prices stay the same. Why? People are confused and frustrated by this situation. I am calling on the Government to work out what is happening – who's making the money and why aren't these Oil price falls being passed on? We need an inquiry into this and we need it now.'
Mr Willson and FairFuelUK has reacted with delight that Robert Halfon, Conservative MP for Harlow has stepped forward to help lead the formation of an All party Working Group in the Commons on the issue of petrol and diesel prices. Mr Halfon has joined the call for transparency.
Harlow MP Robert Halfon said: "We urgently need transparency. The oil price is falling, but hard-pressed British motorists are still paying inflated prices at the pump. That's why I will be writing today to all the major energy companies, to ask if they will lower their prices across the country."
FairFuelUK is backed by the Road Haulage Association (RHA), the Freight Transport Association (FTA) and the RAC. Between them, the RHA and FTA represent over 20,000 UK transport companies and the RAC has over 7 Million members. FairFuelUK has over 157,000 on line supporters.
