Budget 2016: Fuel duty to be frozen for sixth consecutive year

16 March 2016

Motorists have been given a boost as fuel duty is to remain frozen in 2016/17, Chancellor George Osborne has announced today.

The tax will stay at 57.95p per litre for the sixth successive year - it’s been frozen since March 2011.

Fuel duty is included in the price you pay for petrol and diesel.

The government says the move will see the average driver save around £75 per year compared to pre-2010 fuel duty escalation plans.
