Our fuel costs are high for one reason only, TAXES.
More excuses for the cost as usual. People are aware why the cost of fuel is so high now and it isn't because of anything else but the ridiculous taxes put on it by a lazy and incompetent government. The motorist should only pay for what he needs to as a road user, not everything else. Accept your blame and tax fuel like anything else is taxed, vat only. This is THE only fair way.
What adds insult to injury, is that you pay VAT on the Duty - paying tax on tax is indefensibly unjust.
The governements are imposing higher taxes on diesel ( the only ones in Europe) by using the excuse that diesel cars use less fuel per mile than petrol cars.That is correct but they don`t tell you that diesel cars are more expensive to buy and consequently we pay more Vat.In addition as food and other items sold by supermarkets are transported on lorries,these taxes contribute to increase the cost of living.
