Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

PALL-EX MEMBERS have named fuel costs as the top priority to be addressed in 2014, expressing concerns that the government does not do enough to support the industry.

In a survey of approximately 100 Pall-Ex members, all bar one of the respondents said price of fuel was a major problem, which the network believes is "unnecessary strangulation" on growth in the sector and the economy.

Pall-Ex claimed diesel, with the current fuel duty rate of 58ppl, costs hauliers up to £450 per truck per day.

Chief executive Hilary Devey said: "Transport is the foundation of a strong infrastructure. "Road transport leads to more money spent elsewhere in the economy. If the costs of products and services are reduced as a result of cheaper transport, the economic benefits are enhanced."
