Petrol price relief

MCN - - THIS WEEK -

The Govern­ment have an­nounced that they have frozen fuel duty for the ninth year in a row. It was re­ported ear­lier this year that they in­tended to raise fuel duty to help gen­er­ate ex­tra money for the trea­sury. How­ever, in light of al­ready as­tron­i­mo­cal petrol prices they have de­cided not to go ahead with the in­crease. In the last two years, petrol prices have risen by nearly 30%.
