The Latest Budget Promises Low Fuel Prices

The Latest Budget Promises Low Fuel Prices

By RAM Tracking on 18 Mar 2016

The fleet industry is very happily welcoming in the continuing freeze in fuel duty, thanks to the cancellation of the inflation rise, which was due next month; by Chancellor George Osborn.

This unexpected move now means that the rate of fuel duty will continue to be 57.95p per litre throughout 2016/17. This will keep the pump prices at their current price of being 18p cheaper than if the pre-2010 fuel duty escalator plans had been maintained. This is great news for those with commercial vehicles.
