Broken promises after fuel tax hike; Letters email@example.com.
RISES in fuel duty and VAT are adding around 4p to the cost of a litre of petrol or diesel.
But these increases don't just hurt the driver and our hard-pressed haulage industry, they produce price rises at the shops for everyone.
Before the General Election, David Cameron complained about how the previous government had hammered drivers with various taxes.
He even indicated that he could help families by cutting fuel taxes when global fuel prices rise.
It is time to take Mr Cameron at his word. We call on the government to scrap above-inflation fuel duty rises set for the next three years, and also plans for road pricing for lorries.
I urge readers to contact their MP at the House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA or via www.parliament.uk.
