of Premium grade petrol in British Columbia is 90p at most, and can be bought there for quite a bit less, I would say they have little to complain about.

I paid 138.9p a litre for the same grade in London yesterday.

How to adapt and get the last laugh.

Morrisons around our way, were selling petrol at nearly £1.30 yesterday. Tesco was the same on Monday.

Might fill-up tomorrow, and see if prices have increased at Tesco (with clubcard) or the local competitive independent (watches Tesco prices) service station, with Nectar points.

"Fuel prices are a joke"

Must admit I don't find them all that funny.

This may sound daft but...

Alcohol can be manufactured at home (beer, wine kits etc.)

Couldn't petrol be made in a similar fashion.

I realize that petrol is full of hydrocarbons but surely someone might be able crack the code!

Beer and Petrol roughly cost the same.

Both are heavily taxed.
