High cost of diesel; You Say Email:email@example.com.
WHY are diesel fuel prices higher than the price of unleaded petrol in the UK? Diesel fuel is cheaper to produce than unleaded petrol so why, when the government tax and VAT is the same for both, does diesel cost around 22p a gallon more? In almost every other EU country diesel is cheaper than petrol. Could it be that the same government that spouts about the utility services ripping off the British public with their prices, are quite happy to let the oil companies rip off the motorist and collect around an extra 14p in tax and vat for every gallon of diesel sold? Talk about double standards.
