Petrol to go up Again??

A fellow twitterer (is that a word?) flagged up this story which indicates that come April 1st, hard pressed motorists are likely to face yet another increase in the price of petrol/diesel. It is an eye opener to be reminded just how much money the exchequer takes on every litre (I do prefer working things out in gallons) of petrol sold.

You would think that if they really wanted to encourage economic activity a cut in the price of petrol would have a much bigger impact than the miserly VAT cut that was introduced.

Council tax up 3%. £8,000 train ticket up 6% Petrol prices going up. Return on saving – historic low. It can only end in tears!
