We are not alone with rising fuel costs.
Will our Airlines do the same?

There's nothing new about these 'extra' charges, its been in the airline industry for ages. I recall in the 1960's plus, when I was hammered due to excess baggage and certain restrictions.

What I have noticed is the increase of failures in 'low budget' airlines, so the squeeze must be taking effect. The big boys (whoever they are) always seems to win and benefit in the long term. Look at the recent T5 saga, yet some people and companies seem to have weathered that storm.

Not being a major airline traveller nowadays, my main concern is the daily increase of fuel prices for householders a vehicle users.

Diesel at our local BP garage has gone up 17p in
2 weeks.
Now £1.31 a litre.

Going up almost 1p per day here in Perth.

With a Mazda bongo 2.5ltr,that only does 25 to the gallon i,m not far off.
Probably not the mileage that you do though.

My truck burned 2180 litres this week. Granted, its double shifted (at this time its either on its way to glasgow or basingstoke).

"My truck burned 2180 litres this week", but you also transport it, do you not?.

Pretty soon you will start having to have someone ride 'shotgun'...

Anybody know how much a gallon of unleaded is across the pond, compared to here in U.K.?

They are around $3.70/gall in Fort Worth.

I was driven around New York by a client, and he was paying around $3.95 a gallon. He said he could get fuel a few cents cheaper by shopping around, but that it wasn't an issue, and at under £2 a gallon I could see his point.
