Uk Fuel Protests Planned

So now everyone will get full tanks of fuel before Saturday, the fuel companies will still get their money only a bit earlier than they would have because of people panic buying. I don't see how this will cause dramatic changes to fuel prices, it might cause them to be knocked down a bit as a token gesture but the way to really make a difference is to do unplanned ones where the country is unprepared & the fuel reserves run out. I like the idea of protesting to show we're not happy with the price of fuel but I really don't see how this will affect things in the long run

I don't object to fuel prices at all, they are very reasonable....................

Heres the bit I dont like

64p per litre in tax AND VAT, leaving .36p for the actual fuel and a profit for the guy selling it

Charging VAT on the tax is bad enough, lobby your MP, the fuel companies wont feel a thing

Kingo :thumbsup:

£40 for 36 litres of fuel :crybaby:

I was tempted to get £10-£20's worth to see me through to next week to see if this strike thing had an affect but I'll be doing a couple of hundred miles at the weekend so I had to get enough for that. Thank God my car does around 40 mpg

Oh hang on, think I got the wrong end of the stick, so Petrol stations will be open Saturday, it's just a boycott is it? I may fill up tonight just incase...

Surely that will defeat the object and lead to shortages?
