Fuel duty frozen for seventh year in row
Next year's planned rise in fuel duty has been cancelled by Chancellor Philip Hammond - the seventh successive year that the tax has been frozen.
Fuel duty has been held at 57.95p per litre since the March 2011 Budget, when it was cut by a penny.
And Mr Hammond said: "This will save the average car driver £130 a year and the average van driver £350 a year.
"It is a tax cut worth £850m next year and means the current freeze is the longest for 40 years."
