Fuel Duty Scrapped

  Grey Goo 10:10 16 Jul 2008

Well only the 2p future increase, kind of fades into insignificance now though.

Yep, I paid 132.9p per litre yesterday for my diesel.
You need a mortgage to fill a tank!

Cant get them either.

Nor ask for financial advice here on how to get a fuel mortgage:)

I think you should be just grateful for the 2p that is not going to be put on. How much do you think the 2p is going to cost and where do you thing the money is coming from to pay for that?

Looking at the pump prices around my neck of the woods, there now seems to be a difference of about 4/5 pence, excluding the 5p off a litre in Tesco's if you buy £50.00 or more on some items in store. So the 2p isn't going to be really noticeable.

If 2p isn't really noticeable, then perhaps it wouldn't have been noticeable if it had been implemented, and there would have been no complaints at all on this forum.

No, thought not.

Not from Wales that's for sure.

The Treasury budget forecasts were based on oil being c.a $83 a barrel. The Treasury has had a windfall of some £15 billion as a result of the higher oil price. I think that under those conditions they can forgo 2ppl without the sky falling in.

  Cymro. 13:10 16 Jul 2008

They have better things to do with the their £15 billion windfall than to pass any of it on to us. We can pay the extra 2p without the sky falling in.

Not so much scrapped as postponed!
