Road tax bills are now nearly double for gas guzzlers in the United Kingdom. As expected, Chancellor Gordon Brown announced increases in the annual vehicle excise duty would jump to 300 British pounds, but high-mileage vehicles will be charged 400 pounds.

Critics say the government is punishing large families who need bigger vehicles.
