FFUK – why isn’t the price of fuel falling?

Thursday 19 May 2011

Today FairFuelUK Campaign representatives, including the Freight Transport Association and Road Haulage Association, had a very successful meeting with campaign supporter Robert Halfon MP (Conservative, Harlow), who has agreed to raise the issue with government, seeking an explanation as to why the pump price of fuel has hardly dropped despite the significant fall in oil prices.

“This is a tremendous step forward in the fight for a fair price for fuel,” said FairFuelUK spokesperson Peter Carroll. “We are pleased that Robert Halfon is prepared to add his voice to our campaign. We are even more delighted at his support for the formation of an all-party group to endorse the fact that fuel prices and fuel duty stay high on the political agenda.”
