Road - FairFuel petition
Next Monday, July 15th, Quentin Willson of FairFuelUK, Robert Halfon and other MPs from all Parties, will hand in a petition at the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) calling for a full and transparent inquiry into the Oil Pricing process. The FairFuelUK petition contains over 30,000 signatures from Campaign supporters collected in just 5 days.
Regulators in Europe and America are now actively investigating oil price manipulation, yet the UK it seems, does nothing.
Quentin Willson, spokesman for FairFuelUK said: "This is embarrassing. EU and US regulators have acted swiftly yet our regulators say everything in the world of oil prices is fine. There's too much disquiet and whistle-blower testimony to leave the subject of oil price manipulation alone. Something needs to be done now."
