Gamble fuels Budget speculation
Punters have fuelled speculation that Alistair Darling will delay or scrap the scheduled April 1 Fuel Duty increase in his budget.
A gamble with William Hill on that happening has forced us to cut the odds from 4/1 to 3/1.
"If the punters have got it right Mr Darling will be anouncing that the scheduled Fuel Duty increase will not go ahead on April 1," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
WILL FUEL DUTY INCREASE FOR APRIL 1 BE SCRAPPED/ DELAYED?.....2/9 No; 3/1 Yes.
