Vehicle Fuel Taxes
Vehicle Fuel Taxes. Recent increases in the price of petrol have led to the current debate about the rate that petrol is taxed in the UK. Although rising oil prices have contributed to the increased cost, the government has been criticised for imposing a high tax rate on petrol and other road fuels. In this briefing note, Zoë Smith looks at the arguments for and against a fuel tax. "The petrol tax debate" is published by the Institute for Fiscal Studies.
