Sir: As I fill up with petrol at pounds 3.50 a gallon in the Highlands of Scotland, who do I complain to? It is only pounds 1.80 a gallon in Greece, pounds 1 a gallon in Canada, and 65p a gallon in the USA.

The latest fuel tax rise in the Budget is a disgrace. It penalises every rural resident and business, rich and poor, who rely on motor transport. No doubt increased fuel transport costs will be cited as a reason the next time the petrol companies put the prices up.
