Fuel prices are regularly discussed across government. The Department for Transport (DfT), and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) engage the motoring sector through the Motorists’ Forum on the cost of living and fuel costs.

Both Departments continue to review the findings and recommendations of the Competition and Market Authority (CMA), following the publication of their urgent review on fuel retail market competition and the initial findings of their subsequent in-depth fuel market study. DfT and BEIS will continue to work with the CMA and representatives of the fuel industry on this issue to ensure motorists are paying a fair price at the pump.
