SALMOND HITS OUT AS NORTH EAST FUEL PRICES AT ALL TIME HIGH

>> 21 December 2010

NORTH EAST DRIVERS BETRAYED BY LIB-DEM BLUSTER

Gordon MSP, Alex Salmond, has hit out following a report which shows that Scotland has become the most expensive region in the UK for diesel in the same week as petrol prices reached a record high.

The AA Fuel Price Report - published on Friday – comes despite promises from the Lib Dems of fairer fuel prices should they form a government.

Mr Salmond said:

“We live in the oil capital of Europe, but we also pay the highest fuel prices in Europe. This is a disgrace that infuriates drivers across the North East who have to deal with these prices on a day-to-day basis.

“The Lib Dems went into the last election screaming fair fuel prices from the rooftops. Now they’re in government with Tories, any mention of the subject elicits tumble-weeds in the corridors of Whitehall. Election bluster does not deliver for North East motorists, action does.

“For now, it appears the Lib-Dems have dumped their fair fuel pledge, just like they dumped their pledge to students.

“The VAT and duty increase set to take place in the New Year will send fuel in parts of our constituency past £1.40 a litre.

“What Ministers in London forget is that for people in rural areas, a car is a necessity and not a luxury. It’s time for real action, not warm words.”
