Default Price of fuel

Just filled up - 1.42 a litre. I've found that drivers are tending to go a bit slower - better MPG - which can only be a good thing. Maybe it's just me, but there don't seem to be as many cars on the road either.

So, it turns out there are benefits to higher fuel costs, it keeps the plebs off the road. Fuel prices ain't coming down - the more it goes up the better it gets on the roads as far as I'm concerned.

They should also fine drivers who park their cars on the pavement - they are called footpaths for a reason.

We need to do what they do in Japan - you ain't got off road parking - you can't have a car.

The only vehicles that don't slow down are company vehicles - the driver doesn't give a monkeys about fuel economy because he isn't paying. How wrong he is.

Diesel is around 1.39 a litre, its come down a penny

And if you spend 50 on shopping at Tesco or Morrisons, they give you a 5p per litre off voucher.

Asda came down to 1.35.7 on Monday ,but our local store Spar was still 1.42.9 ,
it`s a pity they don`t bring it down as quick as they put it up.

yeah it was starting to take the micky there a while back, tanked my 307 and it cost me 83 which is horrendous, i hope it somehow finds its way back down into the 1.20's but thats probably wishful thinking
