    Fuel tax to increase by 2.35p per litre on 1st Oct

    Hi all,

    Don't know if anyone is aware of it yet, but there is going to be a 2.35p per litre increase in fuel tax from next Monday, which means in some parts of the country it will be over £1 per litre.

    And another in April 2008.

    So make sure you fill up the tank this Sunday.

    Thanks.

    It was all in the last budget, this way it spreads the anger at the labour party over a longer peroid so the fall out subsides before the next rise. Tossers

    yayyyyy lets all race to the pumps on sunday and fill the tank up - well why dont we all fill whatever containers we can - spend hundreds on fuel just so we save a few quid....

    sh1t happens, life goes on, taxes rise....wow big deal

    If the cost of motoring is too much then get the bus or walk


    **Not having a go a u before u think....just lookin at things from a realistic perspective.

    Bus and train fares are going up too.
    Especially with the train fares, it is set to go up about 10% a year until 2015.

    Once again the Government has overspent and their borrowing has exceeded they own predictions. Bunch of monkeys!

    Where to get some extra cash.......................................... motorists are always an easy target...

    You can see their logic though. Give authorization to new outta town shopping centres and retail parks. Have no inferstucture to serve the public's need for public transport to get to these sites due to underfunding and mismangagment within the public sector. Then hike up costs for private car ownership to rake in a bit of extra cash, then bitch about global warming (don't get me started) and revise the car tax bands inline with co2 levels.

    As a nation ( I include myself) we really are a soft touch.
