Prime Minister promises to try and minimise fuel price rises

Prime Minister David Cameron has promised to try and ease the pain of the recent sharp rises in fuel prices by re-examining schemes like the proposed 'fair fuel stabiliser'.

The plan would cut fuel duty when global oil costs rise sharply - an idea discussed when crude oil prices rocketed up to as much as 100 dollars a barrel in 2008 - a level it has been predicted to hit again this year.
