Speaking in his Autumn Statement, Chancellor Philip Hammond cancelled next year's planned rise in fuel duty.
It's the seventh successive year that the tax has been frozen.
In the South West, where many people rely on their car to get around and run their business along a network of long roads, this should be good news.
Mr Hammond said: "This will save the average car driver £130 a year and the average van driver £350 a year.
That’s the longest fuel duty freeze in 40 years & means that motorists will save £130 a year filling up the average family car. #AS2016
