Crude is up, but only around 90 by my last check on bloomberg, even when it was 150 a barrel it wasnt £1.60 a litre, was around £1.30-£1.35 average, so how they can justify this, but there are other variables, lorry drivers, brexit, numerous things that interact with prices, but coupled with congestion & ulez charges, its becoming very difficult to justify driving a damn car & how they expect people to find the money to buy electric cars & with so low numbers of charging points, its a very bad plan imho.

Enjoy it while you still can... :racer:
And don't get cancer, that screws everything up and for sure you can't get relief at the pump!
Sort of puts everything else into perspective...

Fuel price increases are the last thing you need to be concerned about at the moment, fuel cost has always been an ever-increasing fact of life.
There are some much bigger and more worrying increases in the pipeline very soon, best make the best of things now, it's going to get a lot worse folks.

Still, there is always hope and a glimmer of light at the end of a very long tunnel.

Remember back in 2000 when the fuel protests were on - we said it would soon get to £5 a gallon and people didn't believe it

Gov currently take approx 69p per litre in tax , so almost half the cost of a gallon of super jungle juice goes to the gov in tax, and the higher the price the more they rake in from it.

actually the tax is much higher 57.9 p a litre then VAT on the combined price of the petrol AND duty so nearly £1 tax on each litre at a full rate of just short of 203% sounds like sweden in the 70s

Just for convenience, as I only put Shell in my cars, I decided to detour to one in central Birmingham as I had to pick someone up. £1.519 p/l up on the sign with a few cars in the queue, I decided to drive past it instead. Went to the Shell near my workplace 5 miles away, £1.439 p/l. How can they even justify the price difference for the same fuel 5 miles apart?

The problem with Shell is that they're all franchises so there's no standard pricing.
