Press release: Would a fuel-duty stabiliser really be fair?
In a new report commissioned by Green Alliance, the Policy Studies Institute (PSI) examines the long-term impact on the public finances of the previous government’s decision to abandon fuel duty increases. A key finding of the report is that there is a clear, long-term upward trend in crude oil prices. Consequently, for a fuel-duty stabiliser not to be a burden on the taxpayer, it needs to be based on the acknowledgement of a continued steady increase in petrol prices.
