Fuel price coming down?

what does it all mean to me and you at the pumps?

We pay say £1.30 per litre atm , how much are we going to save or is this just to offset the expected rise in petrol.

Anyone give me a simplish assesment.

yeah - 1p off cos of duty reduction but petrol companies will probably put it up 5p cos of the new tax they have to pay

Yep, but if that does happen then the government will hold their hands up and say it's not their fault, it's the oil companies. Useless....

There seems to be a few headlines saying we have been saved from fuel hikes? I'm just trying to see if I missed anything as 1P drop makes very little difference. If it was 10P drop then I would say well done and can live with it.

There is something about the 1P above inflation tax rise being put on hold till 2015.

There was a 5p rate increase due in April, so thats a 6p saving in total I think, haven't read it properly yet though so not sure - OP you do know there are sites such as bbc.co.uk that will detail all this?

well its about 6p, not sure what you were expecting? You know this will cost them millions so will have to be got from somewhere else? Don't forget the other extra things we got - such as the personal allowance going up, and mileage allowance increasing by 5p.
It's also much more than Labour ever did.
Seems like the budget will help people who are working more than those on benefits (for a change!)

I don't ever remember saying I was desperate.
You think on the saving every week I could buy myself say a Chomp bar.
It's obvious you earn lots more than me p/year so your opinion does not count in my eyes because your not in the same boat,as the say !!!
#27
I dont remember Labour doing anything but increasing fuel tax and introducing the 'inflation plus 1p' tax escalator which would have hammered us with another 5p rise next month. Osbourne has cancelled this escalator completely. :)
Yes, the 1p cut is derisory, but compared to Labours war on motorists, us drivers who do a lot of driving are quids in.

Ah don't get me wrong buddy , any party in power would have to make cuts and I'm not a big fan of either one, personally think Labour would have been worse on the motorist.

If it's correct what you say about it it equating to 6P then that is not bad at all but I don't know how you get that figure? (unless a politician told you :D )

There was another 5p rise due for April which has been cancelled, so the 1p reduction plus not adding the 5p is 6p. I know its not 6p off at the pumps, but it's still 6p all the same

Tax after tax, I know let's tax tax and pay some tax for that oh and some more tax on that and we'll shuffle some tax around and tax that.

I'll tell you what they should do, Stick the pump up their derriere ignite it.

1p, 4p deferred, It's a joke, Remember they put VAT up which added 3p extra on a litre, Plus they are going to tax oil companies so they'll just add this on top, It's a bad move.

Why not abolish road tax? Put that on top of fuel duty, A bigger engine burns more fuel = cost's more to run. Simple's, An electric car burns nothing = No tax apart from to electric companies but that's another issue.

You can blame Labour for that - it was always going to happen, reducing VAT to 15% was never going to make savings anyone would notice, and it was always going to go to 20% after that

i wish people would stop saying its been cancelled....... Delayed is not cancelled
1p off the pump isnt going to make a difference because it will just go up by 2p next week and then the delay of the 5p rise will still happen sooner or later

So we have 17.5% tax for as long as I remember and suddenly after one year at 15% we'll be faced with 20%+ forever to make up for the year we had a 2.5% deficit, Only a simpleton would blame Labour for that.

It was so easy for them to add it on and blame Labour for that and that's what they've done, It makes the rise seem more acceptable to everyone, So obvious, Too obvious and that's what they've done.

To be honest Labour made a rod for their own backs, Hook line and stinker.

Right now all their doing is the thing's Labour failed at and pointing finger's like children, Their not dealing with the thing's we want and need.

The biggest issue for me is immigration and Europe but nothings mentioned, What are they doing about that? Nothing, They opened the door for them, They let them in all them year's a go and now they're evading the problem by making the changes that they have you believe Labour failed with.

Send them home, Close the door and say no to Europe, We don't want immigrants living next door in their 7 bedroomed house claiming benefits, We want them out were they belong in their own Countries.

Tax the immigrants, Say they're new arrival's they want to work, Tax them 50% for the first year they're here, Then 40% for the next, Then 30% Make them put something into society and don't let them claim a penny on benefits until they become a citizen.

Our economic crisis would be sorted within a few years with all the immigrant's currently in the UK.

Obviously some measures would have to take place to be successful but we need change on immigration, We want our jobs back.

ok, so if the price was 130.9 today and on 1st april it went up to 135.9 then it went up to 137.9 as the fuel companies added a it on, on the 1st april, if the price is 131.9 is that not saving 6p?

at the time when it was announced to be dropping to 15% quite a few people predicted they would have to increase it to 20% when it ended. That was before any general election was announced let alone a change of goverment

Even on a thread on here people predicted the rise, not really sure why you think Labour wouldn't have done the same?

Yes, They did, which is why they should of left it, We'll never know what Labour would of done as it was only ever a temporary measure anyway and as predicted the prices never really came down by 2.5% either so probably a silly move on Labours part but now we have a coalition and are doomed.

No we won't but we can make educated guesses, which are that it would have increased to 20%.
Labour are the reason we have a lot of the problems we do now, not saying this goverment are any better, but they certainly haven't shown they are any worse yet (in my view!)

I agree certain thing's they have had to change, But feel their still avoiding the real problem's other than the Housing benefit scams.

I think they could of waved the vat increase on fuel duty as it's already taxed far too much and as far as politics goes they'll get the tax from somewhere else, Quite simply the oil companies will simply pass the buck to the consumer so in the end we'll be less than 1p better off and most definitely worse off.
