Of course it is,they say they want to revive the economy,well everything is shipped by road or rail and that needs fuel,the dearer the fuel costs the dearer the food and goods and transportation costs will be.
But they get a guaranteed revenue from fuel duty and the more the cost of food and everything else rises the more tax and VAT they get.
If they really cared about the economy they could drop 20p on fuel and people would have loads more money to spend on things they want.
It's a fucking sham,even the tories didn't try and fuck about with fuel as they know how dependant we are on it.
It's not a choice it's a necessity.
