Lewis says garages should now lower the price of fuel
Following the chancellor’s announcement yesterday in his mini budget, Slieve Croob Councillor Alan Lewis says “local garages should immediately cut fuel prices”.
Ulster Unionist Councillor Alan Lewis has called on local garages to immediately slash their fuel prices, following the chancellor’s announcement that the Government is to cut duty on petrol and diese. The local Councillor has said this reduction should be made without delay.
Cllr Lewis said: “Following the Chancellor’s announcement that the Government is to cut duty by 5 pence on petrol and diesel, local garages should immediately move to cut their prices.
“We have all seen the huge impact that the rise in fuel has had on local families, increasing the burden of weekly bills, and having a direct impact on hard working people who directly contribute to our economy and at times travel long distances to their places of work.
“Over the past few months it has been evident that shoppers have had less money in their pockets resulting in a reduction of footfall across many of our local towns and villages.
“I call on local garages to do their part, make the reduction, cut the duty, re-kick our economy”
