The Chancellor has announced today that fuel duty will be frozen for the sixth year running, as part of his 2016 Budget.
George Osborne said: "We had pencilled in an inflation rise, but fuel duty will be frozen for the 6th year in a row. It's the tax boost that will keep Britain on the move."
Osborne claims this continued freeze will save the average UK driver £75 a year.
The price of fuel has come down sharply since summer 2014 as the price of oil has fallen. For the first time in a decade, the UK has seen prices under £1 per litre for petrol. As such in the lead up to the Chancellor's announcement, many people had expected Osborne to hike the fuel duty by 1 or even 2 pence.
