Petrol going up 2.5p

1st October is the day for petrol to go up 2.5p a litre.
Will people except this or will fuel protests come back?

Will people except this or will fuel protests come back?

I hope very much not as I had very little sympathy for them last time.

I also hope not!
The cost of a litre of Unleaded near me varies from 93.9p to 98.9p.
But this is why some petrol companies have installed new pumps so that when the magical £1 barrier is broken they will be fully equipped for it!

Petrol price rise means everything will rise. What a downer for a Friday night..

There is only one word for it 'TAX'

techie4me, I think it is "accept" not "except". But yes, of course we will accept it. We do it every time.

We might moan about it but we still drive our cars whatever price the fuel is.

Well done for spotting the mistake you win a years supply of my own home made beer.
Will send it through cyber space, will be with you shortly;-)

It's not as if they need to add more duty anyway, the high oil price means they're getting more in VAT anyway, it's a double whammy.

Spend £50 in Tesco's or use one of their credit cards and they will knock 2p off a litre.

It's spend over £50 at my local Tescos & get 5p a litre off!

5p off a litre in our local Tesco if you spend £50 or more.
