Please pass on to as many people as possible!

When VAT was temporarily reduced to 15%, the Chancellor added 2% duty to petrol & diesel to offset the reduction in tax collected from motorists. Now that VAT has been increased to 17.5% again, this hidden tax has not been removed - hence recent rises in your fuel costs. Fuel VAT is now 19.5%
Sign the petition at the link below to have this stealth tax removed!

Forget the VAT, Fuel prices are over 90% tax.
The tax will not be removed and no amount of petitioning will make a difference, in fact in the next budget it will rise again.

Fuel VAT is not 19.5%. It's 17.5% and, just like everything else, will be 20% if Alastair Darling gets his way.

Sign the petition to be either completely ignored or just to be stealth taxed somewhere else instead.
