OFT to say if it will launch fuel market investigation on Wednesday
The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) will publish its report on its information gathering excercise on the UK petrol and diesel market on Wednesday (30 January).
The OFT invited the industry to share its concerns on the high price of fuel in September, when it began a six month consultation period.
The report is expected reveal if there are any competition problems that would warrant the OFT launching a formal investigation.
The Road Haulage Association and campaign groups FairFuelUK and PetrolPromise welcomed the news of the information gathering last year, with PetrolPromise particularly keen on a full investigation being launched.
