Lib-Dems pressing for rural fuel relief fund

Cambrian News reports that the Liberal Democrats have called on the UK government to cut fuel duty in rural areas to help families tackle soaring petrol prices

This follows analysis by the party that shows households in rural areas pay £114 a week on transport costs, almost £40 more than their urban counterparts.

The party is calling for rural fuel duty relief to be doubled to 10p a litre, and for it to be expanded to cover other rural areas where public transport options are limited, and populations are being disproportionately hit by rising prices.

Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Jane Dodds MS said: “People in rural communities are bearing the brunt of these devastating fuel price hikes, yet the UK Conservative government is refusing to lift a finger to help. It shows yet again how families in the countryside are being taken for granted by Boris Johnson and the Conservatives.”
