Fuel Duty Frozen For Seventh Consecutive Year

The government has announced in the Autumn Statement that fuel duty, the largest component of the price of diesel and petrol, will be remaining at 57.59p per litre - the price it has been held at since March 2011.

Chancellor Phillip Hammond announced "this will save the average car driver around £130 per year and the average van driver £350 per year".

This comes as good news to motorists who have in previous months paid considerably more at the pumps due to OPEC speculation and exchange rates.
