Campaigners demand lower fuel pump prices to reflect wholesale decline

Campaigners are demanding lower fuel pump prices in an effort to reflect the significant wholesale falls of the last seven weeks.

FairFuelUK argue a 3p wholesale decline in prices has not been passed onto motorists, hardworking families, small business and the haulage industry.

Prices from Thursday (March 23) compared to seven weeks ago has seen a 4p difference in price on wholesale diesel and petrol while the retail price has only dropped by 1p in the same timeframe.

The Date was collected from Portland Fuels, RAC Foundation, PetrolPrices.Com and FairFuelUK supporters.

Founder Howard Cox believes this is an unfair move in an effort to please oil companies.

He said: “Everything about the shadowy world of the vehicle fuel supply chain has a musty repugnant smell about the way it formulates pump prices.

“It is crucial that the government wakes up to this perennial fleecing of hard working drivers and small business that they continue to ignore.

“If millions of motorists can see this rip off taking place every time they fill up, why can’t Whitehall? The Chancellor would have more cash for the NHS , the elderly, roads and to lower emissions, if he stopped protecting the big oil corporations and inflation would tumble too.
