Ahead of tomorrow's vote in Parliament on a planned 3p a litre increase in fuel duty next month, the consumer organisation Which? has warned of the impact a rise in prices would have on household budgets.
Rising fuel prices are the number one consumer worry and people are already telling us they're having to cut back and dip into savings just to get by.
On the back of inflation-busting energy bill rises and increasing food prices, consumers can little afford another hit on their household budget. We're calling on the Government to think again about their plans to increase fuel duty in January.
The forthcoming Autumn Statement must focus on measures that will help put money back in the pockets of consumers, because the economic recovery is at risk if we don't increase consumer confidence.
