A recent poll from YouGov has revealed that more people want to see a cut to fuel duty above any other tax cut. The study, conducted yesterday, showed 31% of people interviewed wanted to see a reduction to duty in light of high pump prices.
When asked who was most to blame for the current high price of petrol and diesel a massive 58% blamed the Government above all else. Global markets received 18% of the vote while the oil companies came out best with only 16% of the vote.
The President of the AA Edmund King tweeted earlier: “Chancellor should freeze duty as minimum… Increasing fuel duty doesn’t necessarily bring extra money as fuels inflation and less is spent elsewhere.”
