so,

when is the price for petrol gonna slow down and stanbalise or is it going to carry on untill no one can afford it!
when the gov pull there finger out and start thinking of the people instead of themselves
It will only get higher and higher. Why would the gov bring the tax down when they can make a fortune of hard earning motorists....I think everyone should go on strike, or a bunch of lorrys should block the M1 - M25 junction. That might get thier attention. anyway iv had my moan for the day [blah]

What is a real p155er is that oil is tapped of the Scottish coast, refined in Scotland yet we pay higher prices than England who do not produce the stuff!


I'm with you Gman, diesel FTW
Sorry.... did someone say free university tuition and prescriptions? [snack]

This is where I have an advantage living in N. Ireland, 30 min drive & I'm over the border paying about £1.09 per litre (depending on the exchange rate).

As said before the price will never go down, motorist = easy money.

fuel prices are a joke especially when you think what the folks are paying in the states while at the same time driving gas guzzlers with no power. Yet soon as the goverment trys to raise the price their it kicks off whereas over here people have no choice but to take it on the chin as already said it will never go down just up.

Goverment is not dumb they know they are raking it in on fuel tax thats why biofuels are never promoted as they are in some parts of europe as the goverment will lost millions in tax

Remember when i first passed by test petrol was 70p a litre those were the days
