MP says: “Oil Barons are the New Oligarchs Raking in Billions of Excess Profits”

Analyses sourced from RAC Foundation Data, Petrol Prices.com, Gov.uk weekly fuel prices website, and FairFuelUK Supporters Panel

CRANBROOK, KENT, UNITED KINGDOM, May 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Headlines:
• Unchecked oil bosses more than doubled forecourt profits in the last 3 years sparking calls for price cuts by MPs.
• Retail and wholesale analyses by campaigners, FairFuelUK show firms make 126 per cent more on an average tank of petrol since 2016.

1. Since 2016 average yearly petrol pence per litre profits are up 126% and Diesel up 99%
2. Since 2019 average yearly petrol pence per litre profits are up 51% and Diesel up 42%
3. Average yearly profits for 4 years 2016 to 2019 for petrol = 9.9p/litre, diesel = 11.5p
4. Average yearly profits for 2.4 years 2020 to 2022 for petrol = 18.2p/litre, diesel = 20.7p
5. Therefore for the last 2.4 years average yearly pump prices per litre for petrol have increased +84% and for diesel +80%

Howard Cox, Founder of FairFuelUK and Secretary to the FairFuel APPG said: “It nauseates millions, that in a time of national financial uncertainty, super rich corporations care so little for their customers ever deepening plight. From 2020 the cash grabbing fuel supply chain has benefited, not through any great business acumen but from a huge and fortunate global hike in oil prices to swell their already fat profits. Yet unjustly, even immorally, in the same period they have deliberately doubled what they customarily take at the pumps. Had our long called for pricing watchdog PumpWatch, been in place, diesel and petrol prices would be at least 10p per litre less and our hard fought 5p cut in duty may even have been passed onto hard pressed motorists too. Punishing company success is wrong, but implementing a windfall tax on greedy opportunism is right.”

Robert Halfon MP and V Chair of the FairFuel APPG said: “Oil barons are the new oligarchs raking in billions of profits and multi-millions for salaries for oil company CEOs. Meanwhile hard-pressed motorists are being fleeced at the pumps. Margaret Thatcher was right in the 1980s to do it. I hope the Government considers it to address the unfairness but also to provide millions of families with a tax cut or rebates on their energy bills.”

Craig Mackinlay MP and Chair of the FairFuel APPG said: “New data shows that oil companies & retailers are earning between 8p and 10p more per litre, or about £6 more per average tank than they were just four years ago. I’d recommend they implement an immediate 10p per litre cut in pump prices for both petrol and diesel which will revert forecourt profits to their long-term average. I don’t agree with windfall taxes, but I do support fair play. These companies are now taking consumers for a ride and must now do the decent thing in the face off an emerging cost of living crisis.”

Background: Since 2011 the APPG for Fair Fuel for UK Motorists and UK Hauliers has examined major issues that impact on UK drivers. Along with FairFuelUK, it has been a major influencer on keeping Fuel Duty frozen since 2011. As well as fuel taxation, other issues addressed by the APPG that impact on drivers, have included congestion charges, ULEZ/CAZs, parking costs, roads investment, unfair treatment for fossil fuelled vehicle owners, solutions to lower emissions, cleaner fuel incentives, alternative technology options and transparent pricing at the fuel pumps with a continual call for PumpWatch. With the expected decline in Fuel Duty revenue, the APPG will also formulate a long-term approach to the future of road taxation and a positive transport strategy for all road users. https://fairfueluk.com

Since 2010 FairFuelUK has saved drivers over £160bn in planned tax hikes in duty and VAT through constructive and objective campaigning. Had FairFuelUK not campaigned to scrap the fuel duty escalator, fuel tax today would be 90p/lt rather than 57.95p/lt. Today we would be paying £2.40+ per litre at the pumps had FairFuelUK not fought for the World’s highest taxed drivers. Because of the Campaign, inflation is down 6.7% and £24bn has been put back into consumer spending each and every year since 2011.

FairFuelUK is a public affairs team with no shareholders to satisfy, just an award-winning campaign representing the real concerns of hard-working motorists, families, small businesses, commercial drivers and hauliers across the UK. Decades of fiscal exploitation by successive Governments with little in return, warrants the need for FairFuelUK.

For 12 years, this award winning campaign is funded by the RHA, and previously by Logistics UK and other respected organisations, 1.7m supporters and 146 MPs . FairFuelUK is fronted by the Campaign’s Founder Howard Cox. Funding is through support from key founding backers the FTA (Logistics UK), RHA and regular donations from supporters. Previous backers have included the RAC, Association of Pallet Networks, UKLPG and many others.

Finding Top Car Accident Lawyers in Tampa Gets Easier with Bipper Media

Finding the best car accident lawyers in Tampa, Florida is now super easy!

Finding the best car accident lawyers in Tampa, Florida is now super easy!

Bipper Media helps people quickly connect with the best service providers in an area like the Top 10 car accident lawyers in Tampa.

Excellent company, quality development and top notch customer service! Highly recommended.”

— Michael Gumprecht

TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, May 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Road accidents involving automobiles can happen even if somebody pays attention to staying safe and follows road safety rules. The injuries can be serious and life-changing, often bringing about extended rehabilitation, recovery at home, and loss of wages. The trauma can be psychological too apart from possible, property damages. It is even more confusing to find a trustworthy car accident lawyer at the right time. Professional legal advisors can provide invaluable guidance at the outset, paving the way for getting more than a fair settlement from a personal injury claim. Bipper Media makes the search for local service providers, like car accident lawyers, easier. It regularly publishes detailed information about the top businesses in an area, such as a list of the best Tampa car accident lawyers.

The CDC reveals that road traffic crashes are a leading cause of death in the United States for people aged 1–54,1 and they are the leading cause of non-natural death for U.S. citizens residing or traveling abroad

Experienced car accident lawyers can provide a clear, structured approach to filing a personal injury claim. This is vital since personal injury legalities tend to change across the nation. For instance, Illinois is an at-fault insurance state where the driver responsible for the accident should pay for the damages and the claim is filed with the insurance company that covers the driver. However, there might be instances of the driver being uninsured. In such cases, the second option is to file a claim with the insurer covering the injured. There are plenty of such technicalities that are best addressed by a lawyer, and many personal injury firms provide a free consultation upfront.

While the free assistance is handy, it can be difficult to find an experienced car accident lawyer in a contingency, particularly when someone is already in pain or even hospitalized. Some business directories present an overload of information where the listings can look very similar with little differentiation between established legal firms or a firm that has just set up its office. To make things more confusing, some directories can be biased towards showcasing banners of legal firms that have the big advertising dollars to spend.

Bipper Media makes it easier to find car accident lawyers in such pressing circumstances. It publishes detailed information about verified local businesses, such as legal firms, where each firm is presented with detailed information, including genuine customer reviews. This helps the user to make a more educated, well-informed decision.

“Bipper Media, has been excellent to work with on our new website development. They have worked hard, they have done things professionally, they have been timely in their responses and most importantly they have listened and taken to heart our input. We have loved dealing with this great company!” – Michael Woelfl, Website Designer

Building up a case for fair compensation due to a personal injury suffered in a car accident isn’t easy. There are many traps along the way, and one wrong move can adversely affect the settlement. For instance, insurance agents can be quick to visit, armed with an evaluation of the damages, and an offer. The role of the insurance adjuster is about limiting the damages, i.e. minimizing the settlement amount. However, the offer can be further negotiated with some patience and the presence of an experienced lawyer.

Bipper Media’s detailed list of the top legal firms/lawyers, with updated contact information, makes it easy to set up a quick consultation with a legal expert without wasting any time. This is better than the typical ‘near me’ Google searches or depending on referrals from friends and family. This also takes away the need to run multiple web searches and individually visit each business website, or stream online review sites.

About Bipper Media

The company helps brands increase their online visibility on global search engines such as Google and Google Maps, and rank better for local searches.

Windfall Tax, PumpWatch are People’s Priorities, not Net Zero

FFUK Logo

CRANBROOK, KENT, UNITED KINGDOM, May 12, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — As you have previously commented on a potential ‘Windfall Tax’ on oil companies, it is pertinent to present to you, the findings from the FairFuelUK Political Opinion Poll carried out in the last week. 58,000 have completed the survey from cyclists to truckers at https://s.surveyplanet.com/eisp5dk7

Here are headline findings and what respondents want from our government.

• Solving the Cost-of-Living Crisis should be the topmost priority = 81.2%
• Cut energy prices = 80.4% (‘by removal of green taxes and VAT’)
• Focus on the Net Zero Policies = 9.2%
• Implement a Windfall Tax on Oil Companies = 75.4%
• Introduce an independent pump price monitoring watch dog = 78.5%
• Cut Fuel Duty by 20p/litre = 74.6%

Howard Cox, FairFuelUK’s founder says: “At FairFuelUK we have been banging on for months and months about the Government recognizing the cost-of-living crisis as being their ultimate political priority to solve. And to solve it now not wait till the Autumn Budget. So many back bench MPs I work with agree with FairFuelUK, yet still the Treasury and Number 10 remain out of touch, lagging behind public feeling. Our latest massive opinion poll clearly shows the public don’t give two figs about Net Zero, they do worry however about heating their homes, the cost of filling up their cars and putting food on their table. Adopting PumpWatch, a new Windfall tax and putting the green agenda on the back burner, will ensure the Tories restore a modicum of popularity and respect. But I’m delighted to hear the Treasury could be moving towards taxing the greedy oil companies with a punitive tax. Yet will Rishi do it now, perhaps in an emergency Budget, or wait till its way too late?”

Kakao Mobility partners with Splyt to expand mobility roaming services across Southeast Asia

Kakao Mobility Partners with Splyt

Kakao Mobility Partners with Splyt

Kakao Mobility partners with Splyt to enable smartphone users across Southeast Asia to book and pay for ridehailing services directly within their Kakao T app.

This partnership is a cornerstone for Kakao Mobility. Providing a global roaming service allows Korean domestic travellers’ seamless mobility experience to expand into the overseas market.”

— Dong-Hoon Shin, Head of Kakao Mobility MaaS Business Unit

GYEONGGI, SOUTH KOREA, May 12, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Geung-seon Ryu, Kakao Mobility’s CEO, today announced a significant service provision of its mobility roaming services, to seven major Southeast Asian countries, in partnership with Splyt.

As part of this service, Kakao Mobility users will be able to book various transportation options in Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Cambodia directly via the ‘Overseas Travel’ menu in the Kakao T app home screen. Without any additional settings or logins, users can book local taxis, private cars, and motorcycles while abroad through the Kakao T app. The technical integration has been developed by Splyt, the superapp enabler. The transportation itself is provided by Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading ridehailing platform.

Users will also have various payment options via the Kakao T app. In addition to the automatic payment function that allows users to pay with a pre-registered Korean domestic card, the Kakao T app also supports mobile phone micropayments, eliminating the hassle of users preparing local currency in advance.

To further simplify a user’s journey, the Kakao Mobility – Splyt partnership ensures that, when users call a vehicle from abroad, the Korean departure and arrival address automatically converts into their local language via real-time automatic translation messenger and current location photo transmission service.

In 2018, Kakao Mobility introduced its first roaming service in Japan, and in 2019, it began providing the service in Vietnam. Kakao has chosen to launch now, as it expects significant increases in cross-border travel across Southeast Asia, with vaccination certificates now ensuring convenient and safe travels across the region.

Splyt CEO, Philipp Mintchin: “We are proud to expand our partnership with Kakao Mobility across more and more countries, enabling true mobility roaming via the Kakao T superapp. As travel resumes across Asia, our partnership will truly lead to a win-win-win situation – for Kakao Mobility, for Splyt, as well as for the traveller.”

Dong-Hoon Shin, Head of Kakao Mobility MaaS Business Unit: “This partnership is a cornerstone in Kakao Mobility’s aim to develop into a global mobility platform. Being able to provide a global roaming service allows Korean domestic travellers’ seamless mobility experience to expand into the overseas market. In addition, our advanced technologies for realising mobility services, such as our own map and routing engine, allow us to introduce various mobility services in a global market beyond simple means of transportation.
