    £1.50 a litre by 2009?

    I saw that on the front page of a paper today and saw that currently 70p of that is tax. I was only skimming it as I was in a shop, but this is getting beyond a joke.

    This country is going to pot!

    Oil is at a record high per barrel. I doubt it'll go down...even if it does come down it'll have gone up 3 fold in the meantime, so won't make any difference.

    If the cost of oil rises so does the amount of tax. It's all relative.

    yeah but our rip off scumbags we call goverment charge 75% tax on it

    even a 10% tax drop would make a huge difference

    but then again the filling stations would get greedy and hike it back up as they know we are willing to pay it

    ****ers

    every company i this country is hiking up prices and its all fr profit and tax

    look at the energy providers 15% rise yet their profits go up 500%

    something HAS to give or we all would be better living like hermits off the land as working is worthless
