    I worded it a bit badly take off government tax for anything over £1 a litre should be capped to the loss of the treasury and if they want to balance the approach do not send aid to anyone
    I don't get what you're saying, that was worded way way worse than the original statement.

    1. Petrol prices should be legalised at not exceeding £1
    2. The government should not have any tax measures on petrol which will force it over £1
    3. The money lost can be balanced against aid budget

    I do not mind renewable energy but penalising motorists is not the answer. Motorists, students have the most brunt of every policy invented IRL

    And how would the government regulate petrol stations ? . The average price per litre is around £1:30-40 which seems reasonable

    No not really I would not pay anything exceeding £1.50. The fact is if the government did not tax petrol it will still be less then what it is now, even with businesses taking there cut .

    Yes But what's stopping Petrol Companies charging over £1 per litre ? Heavy Regulations would be required to cap petrol at less than £1
