Gordon Balmer, Executive Director of the Petrol Retailers Association said:
“We have responded to the Secretary of State’s letter concerning fuel pricing. In it, we have reiterated our point that we agree on the need for the Fuel Duty cut to be passed on, and that our members have done so.
“The letter also contains a more in depth explanation of fuel pricing as the RAC’s analysis omits some crucial factors regarding the costs associated with operating a forecourt.
“We have offered to meet with the Secretary of State to ensure transparency, further explain fuel pricing and reiterate our view as to how the Government can best alleviate the burden on struggling motorists.”
