Warning Another rise!!!

Just driven past my usual petrol station to find that the price has risen again....this time by 3p a litre!!

So now a litre of standard unleaded costs me 114.9!!! Unbelievable!

When will this daylight robbery stop? If it goes up anymore i will have to sell the car!!!

MOTHER****ERS!!!!!

Re: Another rise!!!

118.9 here...I can now fit £12 more petrol in my GT than I could a year ago.

Since inflation is only 3% that must mean my tank has somehow got bigger!

not a bad point though. a bottle of water costs upto £1 and that comes from the sky, not drilled from underground, refined and then transported to the forecourts

Re: Another rise!!!

UK pays 57% tax...rest of EU pays about 30% on average. There was a table in the Telegraph a couple of days ago.

UK only place where tax on diesel is more than on petrol.

The UK tax is the same on petrol on Diesel. However, as the price is higher due to production/demand reasons you have to pay more VAT.

i suggest you delete this post as it may be a wake up call to other forum users.

Nev you're some what missing the point.

WE here in Great Britannia (rulers of the universe) have the RIGHT to have CHEAP EVERYTHING!!
WE have the RIGHT to live comfortably and become fat off the back of the rest of the world.
I as a BRITISH citizen, therefore DEMAND to have cheaper fuel as it is against my British rights (Britons have more rights than other inferior nations) to pay such EXTORTIONATE fuel bills.

you are in france, your views count for nothing.

Thanks for explaining.





Edit: We don't pay an annual road tax for private cars though.

And my toll bill for this month was 79 Euro, but that included
a return run from Calais.

Re: Another rise!!!

I keep reading about these so called rises in the price of fuel, but it always seems to cost me £10 wherever I go.
