Temporary reduction in fuel duties

Last updated: 17 November 2022

In response to the global energy crisis, the UK government temporarily reduced rates of Fuel Duty for 12 months, from end March 2022.

This includes cutting rates for diesel and unleaded and leaded petrol by GBP 0.05 per litre, with a proportionate percentage cut (equivalent to GBP 0.05 per litre from the main fuel duty rate of GBP 0.5795 per litre) in other lower rates and the rates for rebated fuels, where practical.
