More Fuel Tax!

The Government see it fit to raise fuel duty this week by 2p per litre then another two hikes in the next 18 months.

I'm not sure how much the next raises are going to be but say it's another 2p then another 2p we'll be paying 6p more per litre in 18 months time.

That means we'll be paying around 99p a litre for the cheapest petrol and 1.02 for the cheapest diesel.

Isn't the British motorist burdened enough already?
Are we the softest touch ever?

So what are we going to do about it?

I noticed how expensive fuel was when I handed my company fuel card over the counter to pay for my full to the brim tank of diesel.

If the price of oil increases then it's in direct corellation that petrol prices increase

re: More Fuel Tax!

Every government has increased taxes on the things that the common man thinks he needs.

Beer and spirits. Cigarettes. Petrol.

They increase it, people keep paying for it. The price of a barrel of crude in now close to 80$. The price of petrol in America in now around $2:80, or #1:40, for a gallon. The gallon here is made up of 16 fl oz to a pint, and 8 pints to a gallon. That's a 20% smaller gallon than the Imperial. So the price is 1 pound and 68 pence. The British are paying close to 5 pounds a gallon ...

The fat twot Brown had to raise it cos he has overspent by 10 Billion. Hence he is going to take an extra 500 a year of every phoocker from now on. This is just the start.

These stealth taxes apply to everyone so it hits the little guy most!
