Motorists are being warned to expect disruption as hundreds of lorry drivers head into London to protest about fuel prices. The two-pence-per-litre fuel tax rise, proposed by the Government, has triggered direct action from hauliers.Lorry convoys are said to be forming on the M4 in Wales, the M2 in Kent, the A40, and the M25 orbital motorway around London. Many are expected to converge on Whitehall before handing in a petition at 10 Downing Street.Hauliers claim that the proposed increase is the final straw that would drive many firms out of business. In Westminster 42 MPs have signed a Commons motion asking the government to reconsider the rise. However, the trucker’s fuel protest is unlikely to help reduce fuel costs for car drivers as protesters are only demanding an ‘essential use’ exemption for HGVs. We reported recently on Goldman Sachs’ prediction that fuel prices could double by the end of this year.
