Fuel duty increase delayed again

THE increase in UK fuel duty due in September is being postponed again, the Government has announced.

Fuel duty is due to rise at least in line with inflation every year but Chancellor Gordon Brown used his Budget in March to defer the rise.

Now the Treasury says it will review whether to raise the tax in the autumn pre-Budget report. The tax was frozen last year because of "volatility in the oil market". Oil prices have since risen further.
