UK Fuel Prices

Hi all
I live in the UK where the government insists in placing a tax levy of around 614% on a litre of unleaded petrol.
Two years ago, when petrol prices rocketted throught to roof, there were
protesters everywhere, refineries where picketted and you could not but petrol for love nor money.
Eventually the prices dropped a but and all the ruccuss dies down.
Two years on and i an witnessed pump prices soar by 5pence PER LITre in one WEEK.
So i ask, why are all the people now accepting the stupidly high fuel prices, where are all the protestors and picket lines??????
Come on folks, do we really wanna pay these prices for fuel, after all you car is not a luxury it is an essential part of you life.

If it were a necessity, then you would have a right to drive.. (yes, which could be revoked).
Instead you can apply fo rthe PRIVILEGE to drive.

The lowest price in the UK is about 72 pence per litre. That is about $1 / litre so about $4.50 / Gallon.
