Petrol Consumption Down – We Have Reached A Point Where Consumers Have Had Enough – FairFuelUK
Reacting to news that 20% less petrol is purchased now compared to 5 years ago spokesman said: 'Petrol has become so unaffordable for so many that high prices have changed our buying patterns completely. Such a huge fall in consumption is proof that we've reached a point where consumers have had enough.'
Howard Cox, Co-founder of FairFuelUK said: 'The price of petrol (and diesel) has gone way beyond acceptable and practial economic sense. The current levels of prices at the pumps are inhibiting UK growth, business investment, employment and social interaction. It's time now to listen to all the evidence and significantly cut fuel duty to stimulate the economy and motivate businesses and the public. It's plain common sense!'
