Chancellor George Osborne offered millions of drivers, and thousands of businesses, a ray of hope yesterday (26 January) as he hinted he is considering plans to axe the 1 April fuel duty rise.

As unleaded hit £1.30 a litre, the Chancellor said on BBC West Midlands that he may be able to do “something about” fuel duty in the 23 March budget.

This would save motorists from contributing an additional £500 million to the Treasury a year.

It is thought that the Chancellor was referring to a delay of the rise, rather than scrapping it altogether.

He also said that ministers were still looking at plans for a fuel duty stabiliser.

This arguably may be the most significant development yet for the UK’s biggest campaign to secure fairer fuel for motorists, Fair Fuel UK, which is working with businesses and Westminster to reach a workable solution to protect motorists from fuel tax.
