Isnt it Budget day Wednesday?

As some one who does 20-25,000 miles a year im not looking forward to it :(

This road privatisation thing looks like a scam unless they apply it to new build roads only. Really could do with extending the 3 lane A1 from Leeming Bar all the way to Edinburgh and a new motorway from the M40 down to M4. M1 should be 4 lanes per side all the way like at Nottingham.

Blimey they have even changed the day ... Its always been on a Tuesday....

Road privatisation can only mean one thing ... More money out of Our pockets... But the apparently We are wealthy enough to own a car so should bend over and eat soap ??

Yeah your right dunno why I thought Wednesday. If they whack up the tax on fuel it's gonna kick off. Filled up today at a Sainsburies near Heathrow 1.459 :( per litre for diesel.

My local BP was charging 155.9 for ultimate the other day..normal stuff 146.9.
Supermarkets not so cheap either for their muck!
We are out on a limb and a bit more rural in West Cumbria so not much competition. The bar-stewards rob us.
The independent garages selling the lesser known fuels are generally the biggest robbers round here though

Looks as though £150.9 is the cheapest in the Blackpool area.

I use Petrol Prices Website to search before I fill up . . . . Although I don't drive out of my way to do so as that sort of defeats the object.

But yes I expect more tax on fuel, Beer (I make my own), wine and spirits. . . . I think I'm becoming accustomed to the taste of soap

UK always had a rep for the highest prices in Europe, but I saw a garage outside Amsterdam selling Diesel for €1.76 (so about £1.60 a litre)

Prices round here (east borders) seem to be at the £1.44/Litre for std diesel
