According to the Environmental Transport Association, they are. The ETA calculated that the government's tax on gasoline results in motorists paying more than $890 per ton of CO2 produced, while industry, business and households pay only $12.50 per ton.
This seems even more unfair when you consider that British motorists produce about 38 million tons of CO2 annually, compared with 52 million tons from industry and 62 million tons from offices and homes.

Taxes on gasoline in the U.K. are reported to be running well over $4 per US gallon. Guess Tony Blair can't blame OPEC for high prices at the pump, hmm?
