FUEL duty is expected to be frozen for the tenth year in a row in today's Budget.
It will be good news for hard-pressed drivers - who already pay the most at the pumps in Europe.
We explain what we know so far about the fuel duty freeze.
What is fuel duty?
Fuel duty is a tax on fuel and currently stands at 57.95p per litre of petrol, diesel, biodiesel and bioethanol.
VAT (Value Added Tax) is also charged on most fuel.
Rishi Sunak faced calls in the run-up to the Budget to freeze or cut the hated tax.
An RAC poll showed nearly two thirds of drivers wanted the Chancellor to freeze or get rid of it, which would give a boost to those who have no choice but to drive and give a shot in the arm to the economy.
But The Sun revealed yesterday that it is expected fuel duty will be frozen yet again in this year's Budget.
Tory backbencher Robert Halfon, who leads Fair Fuel UK, said the move shows “cutting the cost of living isn't just a slogan but a meaningful pledge from Boris.”
The expected freeze will be a huge victory for The Sun’s long-running Keep It Down campaign — and for our readers.
We have persuaded successive Chancellors to halt the annual tax raids on motorists, allowing them to keep almost £1,000 now in total since 2010.
Why did Rishi Sunak freeze fuel duty last year?
In last year's Budget, Mr Sunak froze fuel duty and cancelled a scheduled 2p-a-litre tax rise at the pumps.
His u-turn came despite a concerted push by Treasury mandarins to hike the tax, and saved families £60 a year.
Announcing the freeze in last year's Budget, Mr Sunak said: "I have heard representations that after nine years of being frozen, at a cost of £110bn to the taxpayer, we can no longer afford to freeze fuel duty.
"I’m certainly mindful of the fiscal cost and the environmental impacts. But I'm taking considerable steps in this Budget to incentivise cleaner forms of transport.
"And many working people still rely on their cars. So I’m pleased to announce today that for another year fuel duty will remain frozen. Compared to pre-2010 plans, that’s a saving of £1,200."
