ADD YOUR OWN COMMENTS BELOW THIS POST. THEY ARE VERY WELCOME
How can you not see its the price of fuel that is killing our country!!! Even if it was £1 a litre it would help.. How are the goverment so blind!
Unfortunately I can imagine a similar survey being done by the Guardian becoming full of the usual peak oil and climate change doomsters suggesting that fuel duty being doubled.
if they are loosing revenue because the price of petrol is so high we dont use our cars then they need to do thier maths. if a government is unable to see a simple equation like this, and small businesses are going under because they cant pay for the fuel, the economy crashes. we need a New or different government. this one is not working.
I live in the North West Highlands of Scotland where our fuel is currently at 151.9
Keep upping the cost of fuel and we can not afford to run our car which means we are unable to enjoy family days out even to local areas. how are we supposed to let our children enjoy life if they are stuck at home constantly? I dont work but my husbad works full time and has to walk to work and complete a 12 hour shift as we can not afford for him to use the car! Please please bring petrol prices down
Are you all aware that in this age of spiralling fuel duty, aviation fuel duty remains at laughably low levels?
I would like to see some common sense over this absolute stupidity that the British Government are taking over fuel TAX. Isn't it about time that all fuel stations wherever they may be situated, retail at the same cost? (Look at all the 'other' goods that a fuel station try's to sell us) I would suggest that the 'cost' be something that is 'subsidized' when and where it has to be, by Government and over whatever years are necessary to maintain a steady playing field, if you see what I mean? BUT, as its the easy way for them to gain revenue I feel that the whole style of taxation needs to be altered and I do not mean just on fuel. Now, as for the exemption on the use of Rapeseed oil (on diesel vehicles that have been converted to use it) as fuel, as long as 2000 ltrs a year or less are used, you do not pay tax. Can you highlight this one for us? As I am sure many would feel better off to run their diesel on this, 'they' probably don't even know about it?
