April Fools’ Day is no joke for the motorists this year. A double whammy of rising petrol prices and increase road tax is hitting drivers’ heart. Band M cars, which emit the most CO2, will cost extra 500 pounds to drive out the show room from today. For the browsing customers the costs are the major consideration.
“With the new budget coming through, there have actually shot of blow and I’m not happy with that moment. So I’m in a second thought to avert for a car, which one will go for and from there work out innocence or to do.”
The cost of running a car is approaching a record high too. With the price of petrol accelerating upward since the New Year, from January 2009, the average price per liter has risen steadily from 86.2 pence, driven by weak pound against the dollar and rising wholesale fuel prices. On the April 1st last year, the price left the government increase fuel duty by 1.84 pence per liter. On September 1st, another 2 pence per liter was added in duty. In January this year, VAT went break up to 17.5%.
And despite the average price rising 5 pence in recent weeks, the chancellor will put up fuel duty by a further penny per liter, the first installment of 3 pence per liter price hike.
“And if the prices are bad enough as they are, some experts predict, they could reach an average of 125 pence per liter by the second half this year.”
But the petrol station insists the tax is hitting them too.
“I’ve heard of some companies after valuement getting as low as one pence a liter margin on their fuel sales, and that is certainly not the retailer bargain the motorist.”
There are plenty of tactics though to make the pound in your petrol tank go further.
“One of the biggest things is, well, just how you actually drive. If you drive at all aggressively, or even, you know, just not in a very car manner, you can at least ease a lot more feel, so just at ease, drive calmly, and that’s say we required of.”
Keeping calm, easier said than done.
