How will you respond to the rise in fuel prices?

The price of petrol looks like continuing to rise, making the cost of filling your tank significantly more expensive than last year - increasing operating costs for ADIs and eating into profit margins on lessons. How will you respond to this impact on your business?

How much extra (£GBP) did it cost to fill your tank last time?

Enter a whole number (or leave blank if you didn't notice a change)

What do you think the "normal" price of a litre of fuel will be by Summer 2022

What price - per LITRE - in GBP do you think petrol will stabilise at (i.e. what will be the average price), after the current turbulence and any subsequent government measures over the next couple of months, for the start of this summer?

Enter answer as a number (in £GBP) to 2 decimal places

How has the petrol price spike affected your outlook around working as an ADI?

I don’t suppose the government are in too much of a hurry for fuel prices to drop. They afterall get a % of the total not a fixed pence per transaction

Fuel prices will continue to rise further

The Government needs to intervene to lessen the burden on UK citizens in general not just ADI’s as it is their responsibility

If we get cheaper electric cars options then better. Or government has to do something . Even essential food cost even increases . But we can’t change lesson prices for students who with me from few Months.

Once prices rise they never go back to the previous price for long as it is a captive market.
People need cars and most can’t afford to go electric so they have to pay the prices. But electricity prices are also rising, how long before that also becomes uneconomic?

It’s too easy for Governments to use fuel prices as a way of raising revenue. That will never change because they use the excuse of trying to convince the public that it’s a ‘green’ issue. Rubbish! It’s another form of taxation! The rich can afford expensive fuel but the average worker cannot!

Everyone and most industrys are suffering from this very sad situation, which will I’m sure get worse before it gets better. The government and fuel stations need to lower their % of profit before too many businesses including myself as a sole trader, go under.

Looks like all the Lowest IQ level officials are in Government now.
No future planning, No control over sky high price rise but just spending money on fiberoptic cable installation and converting dual carriageway into single lane.
Increase in house rent, council tax, national insurance but NO jobs, better living standard😡😡😡😡😡😡

Simple profiteering is what’s happening. The price of oil went up at the beginning of the year but then went down again, whereas the prices at the pumps remained at the higher price!

Phil Manning 13th March 2022 - 12:35 pm

Government needs to remove or lower VAT

Lee Ellis 13th March 2022 - 8:24 pm

Come on government! The Conservatives are supposed to be low-tax! Fuel is heavily taxed and they could cut prices with the stroke of a pen. Levelling up? Yeah right!

Rob Brunger 14th March 2022 - 11:26 am

It’s life we have no choice to deal with it, govmt needs the cash, with higher prices bigger tax take. Electric cars not the solution, we need to find an alternative. I am not clever enough to figure it out but there are smart enough people who could work out a solution.

Robert Mclean 15th March 2022 - 9:33 am

It’s the times we are living in

Sadhna 17th March 2022 - 8:20 am

Would be beneficial to reduce the VAT prices. UK can make a difference for their citizens and not copy the other countries fuel price rises.

Peter 22nd March 2022 - 10:31 pm

LPG Dacia Sandero Stepway best decision I’ve made as an ADI

Mr Ken 23rd March 2022 - 8:06 am

No comment.take it as it comes

P Bendon 23rd March 2022 - 10:41 am

fingers crossed it calms down soon

stuart pollard 24th March 2022 - 12:41 pm

Fortunately I am going to retire within the next couple of years but I feel for my younger friends in the industry who are being kicked from all sides. The rocketing increases in fuel as well as the high cost of buying and maintaining your vehicle. None of them being helped by the dvsa allowing both theory and practical test datesgetting to the stage where at some test centres you cannot even book a test . This leaves candidates the only option to book out of town tests which means they have to pay much more for more lengthy lessons to familiarise themselves with the area to keep up their confidence. As if the cost of living is not high enough as it is!!!

Linda Taylor 28th March 2022 - 10:44 am

Sadly it’ll remain high for cost of fuel but I think once everything has settled back down we might see the cost of fuel reduce, it does add another financial pressure on top of other things sadly
