We said last week that the clamour over stifling fuel duty would get even louder without definitive action from the Government, and we weren’t wrong.

FairFuelUK, the campaign group launched to encourage those in power to make the cost of fuel fair for all, has garnered support from the likes of the Freight Transport Association (FTA), the Road Haulage Association (RHA) and most recently, The Fuelcard Company, representing the interests and views of thousands upon thousands of hauliers and fleet drivers.

The group has this week renewed its call for the Chancellor to scrap the planned 1p fuel duty rise on 1 April, arguing the hike, combined with rapidly rising levels of inflation, will have a significant impact on motorists and put thousands of jobs at risk.

At the helm of FairFuelUK is Peter Carroll, an activist who was involved in the Gurkha Justice Campaign with actress Joanna Lumley in 2009. So, whether it’s Gurkhas or gasoline, he seems a good man to have around in times of crisis.

He said: “Fuel prices are already at record levels. Everyone is suffering. Surely, it cannot be right to go ahead against the background of such high prices and an increasing level of inflation.”

Peter Carroll has previously said he will take this appeal all the way to Whitehall if he has to, and The Fuelcard Company, for one, will gladly follow.
