Fill up on petrol ASAP

Make sure to fill up on petrol because there is a shortage in the depot in Dublin port and the price apparently will rise 3p in the next day or so. Diesel stock is already gone from Dublin port.*This is a result of the Libya crisis so may be ongoing.

Put in €77 @ 143.9c a litre yesterday when the light came on.

PS Diesel is only 3c a litre cheaper than petrol now

I need a tanker man,
I could get about 25mpg if I drove it gently, very very gently.
So, I get about 18mpg on a normal week. I'm on a mission to mess with tree huggers heads.

FFS This is completely unsustainable. There is no way a country can keep moving with these type of fuel prices. The government needs to reduce duty but lets face it the *******s in Germany and France aren't going to let that happen are they?
