Petition Action

Petrol / Diesel prices

Additional Information

HM Government should drastically reduce the duty on petrol / diesel prices. It should be a noticeable cut (ie not 1p / 2p) that would be swallowed up by the petrol companies.

The effect should be that it would lower transport costs, and this in turn would be passed onto the consumer who would start making purchases. Their own costs would also be reduced.

The cost of this reduction would be borne by the increase in VAT revenue from new purchases.
