Campaigners are putting pressure on Chancellor George Osborne to lower fuel taxes.
A demonstration organised by the FairFuelUK group is being held outside the Houses of Parliament today calling for lower fuel prices.
It will include the delivery of a report to 10 Downing Street saying that a cut of 2.5 pence per litre would create 180,000 new jobs.
Earlier this week average price for petrol reached a high of about £1.37 a litre and diesel £1.44 a litre.
Jeremy Durrant, a mobile DJ from Colchester, has told ITV Anglia how high fuel prices are damaging his business.
