"Any attempt to change the duty regime is expensive... but if he (Mr Osborne) says he's looking at it, then he's looking at it."

Hands up all those who think he will axe the fuel duty rise.

would be not knowing what the cost would be".

Apart from the (possibly equally big) problem of deciding where to set the stabilisation starter point.

sorry pressed enter by accident!

Peter99co you are totaly correct when you stated "Or will he simply get it from us by some other means"

this could be just another political stunt to make them look like they want to help!

This really is a case of look after the pennies and the pound will take care of itself.

Just another back-track, after public or the voters protest?.

He will just hit you in the pocket elsewhere. I am tending to use my car less and less these days due to the cost of running it. I work nights and finish before public transport starts so use it for work, but tend to walk most places now. So his taxation on fuel is working to stop me using the car, however I am not buying as much fuel so therefore paying less tax.
I don't go to the pub much nowadays because of the high cost of beer and if I do go, I drink less. Again, the stance on raising taxes to make me healthier by not drinking has worked. As before though I am not going to the pub so I am paying less tax.
