Re: Fuel prices are dropping

Looks like that free air you breath in your area is not so free after all. The price here dropped to $1.849 today ;)

Hmm. Where did you visit? An anti-car convention? ;o)
(More likely, somewhere like a leafy suburb of London, where a car is too expensive to run when compared to plentiful public transport)
I must confess that I only know of one person who was happy with fuel prices over here.
Finnish, and a fanatical anti-car cyclist, he found himself in the situation of needing a license for his job, passed the test, and promptly moved to Spain. Complaining about "rip-off Britain" as he packed..
Consider yourself trumped :o)

North Sea Coast. Not leafy and certainly different than the people around London.

Typically things are cheaper the further north you go, until you hit Scotland where it can all go weird.
But now all over the UK, people have had enough. It's getting to the point where not just the amount of fuel it uses, but the price of the fuel you pay is dictating what car you drive. That's just wrong.
It isn't using less fuel because you want to use less fuel (a good thing having choice), it's using less fuel because you have to use less fuel, because you can't afford to use the same amount of fuel as you used to (a very bad things). BTW, inthe height of Summer, busses and trains stink because even those with air conditioning have it is either switched off, or in a state of disrepair. Although busses with Aircon isn't exactley a regular site either.
