South Dorset's MP is calling on the Chancellor to do more to keep fuel prices at a minimum.

Richard Drax has written a letter to George Osborne.

Just a few days ago the Chancellor announced August's planned 3p tax rise on fuel would be postponed until at least January 2013.

The news was welcomed by South Dorset MP Richard Drax who said families living in rural areas would be worst hit by the rise.

A number of lorry companies in the County estimated annual fuel bills to rise by £1,500.

But Mr Drax is asking George Osborne to go even further and has written to the Chancellor, challenging him to make petrol even cheaper for families in South Dorset.
