United Kingdom

Scotland has the highest petrol prices in the world. The Chancellor is taxing petrol at 333% compared with 50% for luxury goods. That means £7.60 out of every £10 spent on petrol is tax. It makes it more expensive to catch a bus, or to fly out on holiday. And it means you pay more for goods in shops. It is not a green tax it's a mean tax. Other countries have far better environmental records and more effective public transport systems. All have lower fuel taxes.

To the Members of the Scottish Parliament, we the undersigned petition that the tax on petrol in Scotland should be significantly lowered.
