The freeze in fuel duty announced at Autumn Budget 2017 is forecast to cost the Exchequer £830 million in its first year. These costs continue in future years.

Freezes since 2011 have meant the Exchequer has not collected around £46 billion in revenues through to 2018-19, and a further £38 billion will be foregone over the Budget forecast period as a result of these previously announced freezes.
