star this property answer text <p>The consumption of fuel is highly price inelastic. Therefore, fuel duty freezes only have a marginal impact on the amount of fuel purchased, and therefore limited impact on emissions.</p><p> </p><p>Households spend a significant amount of their total spending on transport fuels, and fuel costs are a major factor in helping the competitiveness of British businesses. Duty on fuel remains at 57.95ppl. The government is also taking action to reduce emissions and improve air quality through Vehicle Excise Duty and the Company Car Tax system.</p> more like this
