    Funny how our oil companies can:
    • buy YOUR North Sea oil
    • refine it into gasoline
    • pay taxes on it
    • make a profit on it
    ...and still sell it for $2 a gallon. What are you guys doing over there, anyway?
    Thank God we're not getting all of the government we're paying for!

    You really don't have a clue do you? Most of the cost of petrol and diesel here is due to taxes.

    What annoys me is that when the price of crude oil goes up the price at the pump increases instantly, but when the price is going down the take their time...

    I saw 103.9 for diesel yesterday. I'd like to see 90p per litre and I'll be happy.

    Diese $2.69 - 2.89 per US gal in this area.

    It was a rhetorical question. I was being sarcastic. The answer was obvious. Less obvious is the reason you all put up with the situation.

    We also value the fact that our streets are safe to walk at night ......... Except for where Porsche lives ............ An entire country dedicated to men in Skirts has to be seen as decidedly "Ifi" ......... Och The Noo

    Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.

    People moan about the price of fuel way to much. I got all excited when it came down 3pence per litre. That is equivalent to a saving of a whole 1.50 when I fill up. 1.50 per week? I can finally afford that porsche I've always wanted!

    The USA have it good. It used to over $4 a gallon. It has more than halved in price now!

    If it weren't for wrong opinions, you'd have none at all.

    What's that got to do with paying too much for gasoline?
