Campaigners ask “Why isn’t fuel price falling?”

by

Robert Halfon MP has put his support behind the FairFuelUK group and their campaign to reduce the cost of filling up in the UK.

Representatives from the group, including the Freight Transport Association and Road Haulage Association, met with Mr Halfon this week to discuss how best to keep the issue in the minds of the Government.

Mr Halfon has agreed to raise the issue of fuel pricing with the Government. He will ask why the pump price of fuel has not dropped in recent weeks, even after the price of oil dropped significantly.

Peter Carroll, a FairFuelUK spokesperson, said: “This is a tremendous step forward in the fight for a fair price for fuel.

“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.”
