Bit of an eye opener.Just shows how much this government takes off us in tax.You get your wages,they are taxed and very near everything else you buy or do is taxed.We must be one of the highest taxed nations in the world.
In actual fact, although I would normally knock the Government for the tax it soaks up from the price of petrol and diesel (without doing any actual work), it is actually losing out on the tax levels it takes on current prices.
Previously it was 76 per cent of the actual price we paid at the pumps, but this figure has dropped to around 56 per cent since the steep fuel price rises.
Still extortionate in view of the fact that the oil companies and the petrol stations have to do all the work and even collect the tax and VAT involved on behalf of the Treasury without suitable reward, but in fairness worth pointing out.
