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
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)

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.
