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 ...

BBC BreakfastYou may have watched BBC Breakfast on today, Saturday morning and choked on your Frosties when you heard that there are plans to raise fuel duty by two pence to help pay for pot hole repairs.

Reacting to news that 20% less petrol is purchased now compared to 5 years ago FairFuelUK spokesman Quentin Willson said: 'Petrol has become so unaffordable for so many that high prices have changed our buying patterns completely. Such a huge fall in consumption is proof that we've reached a point where consumers have had enough.’

 

Howard Cox, Co-founder of FairFuelUK said:'The price of petrol (and diesel) has gone way beyond acceptable and practical economic sense. The current levels of prices at the pumps are inhibiting UK growth, business investment, employment and social interaction.It's time now to listen to all the evidence and significantly cut fuel duty ...

Reacting to news that the OFT believes the UK petrol/diesel market is ‘working well’, Quentin Willson of FairFuelUK said, ‘UK consumers will be bitterly disappointed.' 


'The nation will feel let down. Quite frankly, I’m shocked. The OFT investigated in 1998 and now have done so again. Every motorist and business in Britain instinctively knows that ‘something’s not right’. The Americans and the Germans are holding inquiries
