Back when the last time the fuel prices were rising (& eventually got to about £1.30/litre for diesel), my petrol Escort died. IIRC this was just before the price boom.
I opted to go diesel & picked up another Escort, but diesel this time as the difference in price was only an extra 2p/litre or something like that.
Then it boomed, and by the end of it, diesel was something daft like an extra 14p/litre, so i was still saving, but nowhere near as much.
So when i was thinking of ditching the Astra for diesel, i thought i best not, as it wont be look until diesel prices skyrocket.
Yet, they sort of have, but not more than petrol. Certainly not around these parts anyway.
Anyone know why this is? I expected they'd boom like last time, but they haven't.
Or owuld it because last time, everyone was buying diesel cars so they tackled it at the pumps & this time folk are saying we're not falling for the same trick??
