The event took place against the background of the FairFuelUK ePetition passing the 100,000 signature count on the Governments ePetition site. This will almost certainly trigger a full Commons debate on this issue.

Well done Quentin and team, excellent result getting 100k sigs AND getting Morrisons on board.
£1.29 per litre is still too much,needs to be a lot lower
I knew for sure on the very day that petrol was sold by the litre instead of the gallon, that this essential liquid would become the primary milch cow for government greedy for revenue. The penny per gallon increases we were used to were applied to litres and the revenue was instantly multiplied by 4.5, and politicians thought/hoped we wouldn't notice.
The supermarkets only do it on offer in store. i.e spent £50, get 6p off a litre of fuel. What if you dont use that supermarket, then u have to pay more....... wrong,wrong,wrong.......
We do a lot of talking but no action, if anybody wants to get this fuel down is so simple, do not buy from Shell,Esso, Total or BP buy at the Supermarkets just watch the price come down then.
Morison's nelson today £1.29p a litre you should see the Que god knows what would happen if it came down 10p a litre
Brent is trading at $99.3 as I write this, down $15 a barrel in 14 days......so where is my 10p litre drop at the pumps.....thank goodness for Veg oil at £1 litre
Perhaps the oil speculators should be seriously investigated, as they appear to be deliberately sabotaging the economy for their own profits. Banking Crisis 2 maybe?
i recently emailed the government about this very issue regarding commercial vehicles and retaqining job through cutting fuel prices - i got the standard reply and nothing more.
It's not the oil companies that are ripping us off, it's the government. If it wasn't for the fuel duty and vat on top of that, the price at the pump would be under 50p per litre!
