Are Petrol Price Rises effecting you?

February 7, 2011

As we all know, the cost of fuel is something that effects everyone. The economic situation and gradual decline in oil supplies is meaning that prices of petrol in the UK is at an all time high. The price having risen by over 14% in the last year, with another fuel-duty increase planned this April is set to be even more than this. The increase is only a mere penny per litre, but is estimated to cost UK businesses up to £430 Million.

Businesses across the UK are together in thinking that the government need to step in soon before it is too late. This latest fuel-duty increase is set to increase the count of increases to 9 in the last 29 months, accounting for a 25% increase. This also means that the government is taking just under 60p per litre of petrol for fuel duty.

Businesses that are among the hardest to be hit insight of this are taxi firms and driving schools. Small driving school businesses are finding the fuel price rise hard, as lesson costs are priced competitively with other local companies, meaning that every fuel-duty increase is effectively a pay cut for the driving instructors. However by raising the price per lesson, may effect the decision of a student choosing between their driving school and a competitor who has refrained from raising there prices. All this in consideration, the cost of driving lessons is evidently going to increase, which is making learning to drive more unobtainable for some.
