Already started.My local asda has gone up 4p in as many weeks.I paid 1.44.9 for diesel yesterday.For the last couple of years,I've got the feeling that fuel retailers are in cahoots with Osbourne.Just before the last couple of budgets,the fuel has gone up a few pence per litre.Osbourne will now say the fuel will not increase in the budget but of course he is already getting the increase anyway but tries to make out he's doing everyone a favour.

I also think that fuel outlets are keeping prices up as demand has reduced so they are trying to maintain profit levels.  What i cannot fathom is the why the laws of chemistry are different in UK compared to the rest of Europe. One motoring supplement stated that diesel was mor expensive than petrol as you don't get as much diesel from each barrel of oil as you do petrol. To increase the amount of deisel needs a more expensive refining process. Fine, but that being the case it still does not answer the question as to why UK diesel is so much more expensive than UK petrol when that is not the case in Europe. I actually think it is the retail trade keeping profits up as more diesel and fuel efficient cars come on the roads.

I've just seen diesel at £1.46.9 in the Wye Valley. I'll stick with LPG.

It's better in a Royale!

Feeling pig sick today as I was going to fill up on Friday but the garage was busy when I passed. Went today and it was up from £1.38 - £1.40.

Being a Scotsman that £1.60 hurts

It's £142.9 here in Rugby, last weekend we were in Newport Wales and paid £139.9  If it keeps going up in Rugby it might work out cheaper to go to Newport just to fill up.

I give up.
The To$$er$ who fix the price, Cameron and all his cronies know full well we'll carry on paying.

The last time i looked at deisel it was £1.40 at Newcastle which is really expensive!! i cant beleive we are paying this amount for fuel.  I remember when we all started complaining when the price of fuel went to a £1!! now look where we are?? Why hasnt people started complaining more, where is the blockaids and people on the news saying how bad it is??
 
Its not just fuel which has gone up, its getting more expensive to do your weeks shopping! why is everything going up but our wages are staying the same.
