"Around three quarters of the cost of a litre of petrol goes to the Government in duty and tax. Prices have increased with the effects of Hurricane Katrina.
A Treasury spokesman said that working with the US government to restore oil production there in the wake of Hurricane Katrina was the most important factor in reducing current fuel costs.
The spokesman added: "It is worth noting that road fuel duty rates on the main types of petrol and diesel are lower now than they were six years ago, back in 1999, and since then, the main rates of road fuel duty have fallen nearly 12 per cent in real terms, saving the average motorist around six pence per litre every time they fill up."
The week-long protest five years ago was widely thought to have cost British business £1 billion."
