Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce is demanding that Chancellor Alistair Darling scrap the increase in fuel duty.
Like Birmingham Chamber earlier this week, Coventry and Warwickshire has hightlighted research from the British Chambers of Commerce which shows that the Government has already raised billions of pounds of extra revenue through rising oil prices.
It is claimed that a fuel duty rise of 2p last October, extra VAT from oil and an increase in corporation tax received because of a rise in North Sea oil prices has led to a huge windfall in the Treasury coffers.
This, said Louise Bennett, chief executive of Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, enhanced the argument to scrap the upcoming duty hike.
She said: "We've already written to the Chancellor and we will go back to him again. We have come together with other Chambers nationally as this is an issue about which we feel very strongly and we know how important it is to the business community locally.
"It is clear that the Treasury is already gaining billions of extra pounds of revenue from oil and fuel, so surely now they can give businesses and motorists a break.
"The impact the ever-increasing cost of fuel is having on haulage firms is massive and it is harder and harder for them to survive. But it impacts too on every other type of business and, while scrapping the 2p on fuel duty in April is not going to redeem the situation totally, it would be a start.
"In the long run, we do need to come up with a better way forward because our hauliers are not competing on a level playing field with foreign competitors."
