Branson's next venture with the Virgin group is Virgin Fuel, which is set to exploit the recent spike in fuel costs by offering a revolutionary, cheaper fuel for automobiles and also aircraft (in the near future).

Branson was honoured by the Conservative government in the 1980s, and was briefly given the post of "litter tsar" by Margaret Thatcher – charged with "keeping Britain tidy." He was again seen as close to the government when the Labour Party came to power in 1997.
