Labour had hoped some campaigning Tory backbenchers would support its motion and rebel against the Government.
But Robert Halfon MP, who has led the campaign against increasing fuel duty, said he would not vote against the Government until he had seen whether George Osborne responds to mounting concerns in the Autumn Statement, due on December 5.
He said: "The cost of fuel is the number one issue, that's why I am campaigning on it.
"I have had discussions with various people and it is my view that the Government is in strong listening mode.
"If I didn't believe that I would make a point and go in to the lobby with Labour."
