Motorists blame government for fuel prices



Rocketing prices at the fuel pumps could lead motorists to vote out the Government, a poll claims today.

Two-thirds of 18,500 AA members surveyed said they would vote for a different government should petrol prices rise to between 125p and 149p a litre.

The national average for a litre of diesel is 131.7p with unleaded petrol at 118.5p a litre.

Almost half (49%) of those polled believed the government was most responsible for the rise in fuel prices.

And a majority said their priority - if they were transport minister - would be to freeze fuel tax. A further 25% would make public transport cheaper and only 8% would penalise 'gas guzzlers'.

As many as 19% would start active protests if prices rose to between 125p and 149p, although 36% said they would never protest nor would they vote for a different government whatever the fuel price.

AA president Edmund King said: "These results suggest that motorists have little faith in politicians to deliver motoring-friendly policies.

"This is on a range of issues including fuel prices, taxation, and road maintenance. Whoever grabs the turf convincingly will gain advantage at the ballot box."

Maybe they would be more inclined to do something if the election gaps where shorter.

The country is bouncing at the moment over this issue but is anyone listening....

No-ones listening, cos no-ones taking action. Any strike action or whatever is heavily policed and contained, so it has minimal effect. What is needed, and Matty suggested this as well a some point, is for all British Motorsists (or a lot of them) to starts striking, refusuing to by petrol at certain places etc etc...

But thatll never happen...cos its Britain frown
