Autumn Statement 2016

The Chancellor in his Autumn Statement today announced that duty on road fuels will remain at the current rate of 57.95 pence per litre.

A VAT rate of 20% is also charged on the total pump price of diesel and petrol.

In 2015, duty and VAT accounted on average for 69% of the price of fuel at the pump. Pre-tax pump prices in the UK have been consistently amongst the lowest in the EU over the last 10 or more years.
