Default Diesel Fuel

Ive just taken a trip through UK, France and Spain,
The difference in diesel fuel prices is ridiculous, The UK 1.40-1-50 pound a litre, France 1.35-1.45 euros, Spain 1.25-1.35 euros. what happened to North sea oil?

Isn't it more to do with VAT and duty as opposed to the raw cost of the product?

Think that's down to tax more than anything. Now eveyone is buying diesel cars due to fuel economy, the govt have you by the balls in another way!

North sea oil is a Top grade Sweet oil , more suitable for refining down into high grade lubrication. We Import Raw crude as this is tack that is split down into Gasoline / Diesel products . It is doubtful wether you ever stuck a North Sea product in your tank !!

This is why:

If you pay 130p for a litre of unleaded petrol or diesel then the breakdown would be something like this:

per litre
Excise Duty - 59p
VAT - 21.7p
Oil Company - 44.3p
Retailer - 5p

So 81pence pl for tax man.
44ppl for producer
5ppl for seller (of which up to 3ppl will be operating costs)

60l tank = 48 to the tax man
