The fuel stabiliser definitely needs discussion. However, it should also reflect a drop in crude oil prices as distributors do in the US. On 9th Sept Brent crude was $115/barrel and it has steadily decreased to around $102/barrel on 2nd October. That's approx a 5p/litre reduction and guess what? No change in price at the pump, it is scandalous. I appreciate that there are associated costs of refining, tansportation etc but these should come from the Oil companies profit margin not our pockets.
Small business people are affected the most having to pass on fuel price rises to the customer straight away or profit is cut drasticly
Although I'm too young to drive, I know how much my mum pays for petrol...I think it should be lowered YEEEEAAAAAHHH!!!! YEE HARRRR
i am too young to drive but i know that my mum has to pay 40 pounds a week on petrol it is like 19.9 per litre and i pay much attention to how much she pays, the petrol should be drasticley lowerd to a low price and i know car fumes causes pullition but even though my mum works constantly and i am just look out for those people who waste money on petrol. plz lower the prices
The amount of tax on fuel is staggering compared to other countries no matter how the goverment waffle it we pay the most, even worse is the amount the fuel companies are making in one day.
i worked as a carer for 19yrs and have had to give up because it cost me most of my wages to fill up my car
it means my journeys have to be cut back because i am pensioner.
I find each week that I have to cut down on food quality to compensate for the higher fuel prices.
the government has always penalised the motorist, but very little of the tax goes to keep our roads up to standard
Great if you are a lucky city dweller with excellent public transport options, people who live in the countryside are totally dependent on their cars, because country bus services have been cut to just a few a day! Increased petrol prices will mean people trapped in their homes. Keep petrol affordable, it is a necessity, not a luxury for many people.
I am disabled and not intitled to the motorbility so I have to pay car tax and insurance for my car, I have disabled badges and still get no help
fuel prices need to go back down this is an absolute joke 138.9 a litre think its time to go down or loads of people are gonna start doin petrol runs
I live in the countryside and there is no public transport and would be unable to run my buisness and get food for my animals without transport.I have no choise but to use my car, if i did not have one i would not live here. A. Caunce
We are not all in it together regarding motoring. There are many who can well afford an increase in fuel duty and still drive gas-guzzling cars. There are those on low wages and pensioners who cannot afford an increase, but require a car to get around, the bus services being continually reduced, especially in rurual areas. Perhaps we could replace the bus pass with a fuel discount card .
IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW MUCH WE HOWL NOTHING WILL BE DONE THERE ARE ONLY TWO WAYS OF MAKING IT HAPPEN THE FIRST IS GREEDY MPS IF THEY TRULY WISH TO REPRESENT THE PEOPLE THEY SHOULD HAVE NO WAGE ONLY EXSPENSES PLUS THE THE KUDOS AND WARM FEELING OF HELPING US THE OTHER IS TO BLOCK THE M25 FOR 2 DAYS THE EFFECTS WOULD BE FELT AT WESTMINISTER AND EVEN ON THE MAKE ON THE TAKE GREEDY MPS WOULD TAKE NOTICE
Whatever anything can be done to regulate the fuel price, should be done. What I hate is when I am paying a price at Tesco garage and opposite is a Sainsburys garage charging less. So....Tesco relying on the fact that you have a club card (because of the x 4 factor sometimes for restaurants/breaks)
As a result of the recent allegation of fuel price fixing. If this turns out to be true then the Government will need to do something effective about it. By effective I mean reduce the cost of fuel. If that does not happen then I will remember this at the General election when I decide who to vote for. To ensure that I remember it I have put a general note in the e calendar to remind me.
I need my car for my job but if the costs keep rising I will be forced to give up work and get rid of the car I'm also paying more income tax and the county we live in have speed traps everywhere so there's no pleasure in driving the buses have been cut no service at night bank holidays or Sundays thank you this government life ain't worth living
