Price of petrol in the UK
Today was the day I decided that it would be much cheaper to buy four new tyres a month, rather than fill the car up with petrol.
Where I live it's now 91.9p per litre. Mostly going to the government, not the petrol/oil companies.
About 5 years ago, there was a major protest at the cost of petrol, which brought the country almost to stand still, as there was hardly any petrol at the pumps due to protesters blocking petrol tankers, which affected the dependants of fuel, such as workers travelling to work and also supermarket delivery trucks, hence almost empty shelves.
So, now a question, apart from why do the fat over fed goverment want so much tax from us all the pissing time. Where the hell are the protesters now? Petrol has never been so expensive here. When the protests were on, the petrol was much much cheaper than it is now!
Where have the protesters gone? I'd most certainly join in a protest. It's high bloody time this government realised this country is OURS and NOT THIERS. There are a damn sight more of us than there is of those fat greedy buggers, so why are we letting them get away with this crap?
