“The Chancellor announced that the proposed fuel duty increase of 1.16 pence per litre planned for September 2014 would be scrapped, saving motorists around 90p each time they fill up an average 55 litre tank.
“Cumulatively, with the various other duty freezes announced over the length of the Parliament so far, motorists are now benefitting from an average reduction of £7 each time they fill up a 55 litre tank.
“By the end of this parliament, average pump prices will be 20 pence per litre lower, saving motorists £11 by 2015/16, according to the Chancellor in his speech today.”
