Government long term commitment to LPG


The Future of LPG

The March Budget announcement endorsed the Government’s long term commitment to support LPG.


Continuation of the three years advance notice on fuel duty.


Continuation of only a small reduction of 1p per litre per year in the duty differential between LPG and petrol / diesel is continued into 2008/9.


The reduction of 1p per litre in the duty differential between LPG and petrol / diesel for 2006/7 has been deferred along with proposed duty increases for other fuels.


As a result the price at the pumps will continue to be around half the price of petrol and diesel for the foreseeable future.
