“Everybody thinks an independent Pump Watch body to oversee forecourt fuel pricing is long overdue. Drivers need fair honest and transparent prices at the pumps. Only those with vested interests would disagree.” Quentin Willson
Help MPs and FairFuelUK secure 'PumpWatch' Please help us to Set up an Independent Pump-Watch body to monitor and regulate vehicle fuel pricing.
You may be surprised to learn that how much we pay to fill up our cars vans and trucks isn’t regulated at all. And having no government watchdog or independent pricing body means that how, when and why forecourt prices rise and fall is a closely guarded secret. We think that’s wrong!
The FairFuelUK Campaign’s 1.3 million supporters along with hundreds of MPs and their constituents want this to change.
We’re recommending an independent Pump-Watch body to ensure everybody understands how road fuels are priced and that the 37 million drivers in the UK get the fairest and most transparent deal possible. So, if you can’t understand why fuel prices rise almost overnight but take weeks to go down, please sign this E petition.
Background: In last 3 weeks’ diesel, base supply cost is down 11.66%, the published wholesale cost is down 4.07%, YET at the pumps as to what we pay when we fill up it is UP 3.81% - Similarly for petrol: base cost down 9.84%, wholesale down 3.42%, BUT at the pumps it's UP 3.20%

FairFuelUK is supported by 1,384,000 members of the public, the 20,000 haulage businesses in the RHA , FTA and the Association of Pallet Networks - Over 140 MPs have also declared their support for the FairFuelUK Campaign. The Campaign's primary focuses are to see a significant cut in Fuel Duty (with VAT the total tax approximates to 66% of the pump price), more pricing receipt transparency and for petrol and diesel to be of equal levels of pricing at the pumps.
We only send emails out when there is a key event in the campaigning cycle such as the Budget, Autumn Statement, APPG Meeting, Lobbying Event that warrant contacting you for support.
