The UK has the highest fuel taxes in the European Union. 60 per cent of what customers pay at the pumps goes straight to the taxman. When drivers pay £30 at the till, around £18 of that is paid straight to the Exchequer, with only the remaining £12 covering the cost of the fuel - including just £1 to the retailer.

Fuel Duty is an excessive and unfair burden on struggling families, whether they need to get to work, take their kids to school or do the weekly shop. We need you to write to your MP to persuade them to support calls to freeze fuel duty for the rest of this Parliament.
