IAM chief executive Simon Best said: "Cancelling the rise in fuel duty will help to keep Britain's economy moving. It's not just good news for motorists - from supermarket food deliveries to life-saving emergency services, the nation depends on its roads. This is a saving for everyone.
"Cyclists, motorcyclists, car drivers, lorry drivers and bus and coach passengers should all welcome the £1 billion investment to our roads. Newer roads are safer and should cut journey times."
