I Wonder

Where I live petrol is going up weekly if not daily. Now we all know the reasons the petrol companies give,spot market increase,exchange rate pound against the dollar,(oil is traded in dollars)& of course the government tax rise.
Now I wonder if the spot price falls or the pound rallies against the dollar will prices tumble at the pumps just as fast?

Well they did during the recession - they fell from prices similar to those today to around 80p / litre within a rather short space of time. I can't see a repeat of that happening though

Prices are related to the space industry -

Fall due to gravity at a constant rate.

Rise like a rocket

"will prices tumble at the pumps just as fast?"

What a quaint idea!
