FairFuelUK has asked the new Chancellor and his Treasury Ministers to go further and be bolder than his predecessor at No 11. He needs to act positively on what all economists agree, that lower vehicle fuel costs are indeed a huge boost to the UK’s economy. 

We delivered by hand to the Treasury and to the Prime Minister’s Office a letter explaining FairFuelUK’s evidence based campaign demands of the new Chancellor are as follows:


  • Cut Fuel duty on all fuels by 3p to match, more closely those of other developed nations
     
  • Cut VAT on all fuels to 15% - to soften ...

Do you remember before the EU Referendum, Goldman Sachs via the AA, both saying that pump prices would rocket by 18 pence per litre? A plethora of highly paid PR Execs in motoring organisations jumped on project fear’s doom wagon to say the same.  See the published article here. 


We at FairFuelUK (that’s Quentin Willson and myself) said then, and have been proven right that this would never happen.  


BUT it's clear since June 24th that someone in the fuel supply chain is undeniably exploiting, even colluding against UK drivers and not passing on the published sterling falls in wholesale costs. See the graph of pump prices ...

Supermarkets will at last cut pump prices by 2p per litre. Asda’s new national price cap will bring diesel down to 106.7ppl and unleaded down to 105.7ppl at all its 272 petrol stations. 

But there is is still no sign of most of the fuel supply chain passing on the recent reduced oil prices and published wholesale falls to UK motorists. Since the EU Referendum FairFuelUK estimates that over £400m has been held back by unprincipled fuel suppliers out of consumer spending and the consequential benefit to the economy. There is also huge variation across Supermarkets such as Sainsburys as shown below:

  • SAINSBURYS TUNBRIDGE WELLS = 110.9
  • SAINSBURYS ...

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 ...

FairFuelUK challenges fuel retailers following the EU Referendum result not to unscrupulously hike fuel prices more than is fair, using wheeler-dealer exchange rate and oil price speculation as misleading smokescreens to fleece 37m UK drivers at the pumps. 

Quentin Willson, TV Motoring Journalist and Lead Campaigner for FairFuelUK said: ‘We’ve done the maths* and crunched the numbers. Any rise above 3p a litre to reflect currency movements is just post-Brexit opportunism. If it transpires that the oil industry is trying to deliberately profit from the UK's current political and economic upheaval they should hang their collective heads in shame. This is how recessions begin.”

Boris Johnson tells exclusively to FairFuelUK that leaving the EU will be beneficial for motorists, white van man, the UK haulage industry and the motoring-based economy.

 


 

In a 30-minute exclusive interview with TV broadcaster, motoring journalist and lead FairFuelUK campaigner, Quentin Willson, Boris Johnson confirmed he’s on the side of the UK’s 37m drivers.

  

  • Quentin Willson said: ‘Boris is one of the very few politicians who understands roads, drivers, vans, cars and trucks and fuel. There’s no one in Westminster with his motoring experience and knowledge. He makes a powerful case that leaving the EU would reduce cost for 37 million drivers.’

In your opinion what's best for the UK drivers?   
'In or Out' of the EU... 
 
 
 
£18 Billion will be saved each year by leaving the EU, but would that be the best decision for UK's 37m Drivers? Would some of these savings help motorists, commercial drivers and the economy outside of the EU? Or would the UK Government continue to take drivers for granted as cash cows if we leave. Take a look at this YouTube. Quentin Willson forensically looks at driver based issues in relation to leaving and remaining in the EU:

 
 Issues covered in the video include:
  • EU Driver Benefits
  • New Car Prices
  • Car Servicing
  • Car Safety
  • Emissions
  • Potholes
  • VAT on Fuel
  • Sterling and ...

Ministers reject diesel scrappage scheme 
as 'ineffective and expensive'
Calls for a diesel scrappage scheme have mounted in the wake of the emissions scandal   

27 APRIL 2016 • 9:34PM

Ministers have rejected mounting calls for a diesel car scrappage scheme to help tackle air pollution, claiming it would be ineffective and prohibitively expensive.

MPs on the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Efra) select committee on Wednesday joined the ranks of influential groups urging the Government to offer cash incentives to drivers of old, polluting diesel cars to trade them in and buy low emissions vehicles.

But a Government spokesman told the Telegraph it had no plans for a car scrappage scheme.

"A national scrappage scheme cannot guarantee reductions ...
