WE should enlist some simolian(sp?) pirates to pillage these oil ships bringing the stuff in I see some possibility of a black market for gas.

That's good to know! am still boycotting BP so now I can add shell to that too, they are all connected somehow, pretty soon if I keep crossing places off we'll have nowhere to get fuel from! I guess at that point it's time to get a bike and get fit :p

New Jersey here, and I see around $3.30 - $3.50 the average price of a gallon of gas. I'm sure it's going to go up though by this summer.

Thanks PDUK! That says it all! We're being ripped off and I don't see them changing tack anytime soon. Wonder if he'll put road tax up in the budget. Wouldn't surprise me if they don't find a way to tax electric cars too.

Already around here we've had people siphoning off oil from central heating tanks and lead and other metals being stolen from roofs of buildings in Redditch.

speaking of stealing metal,
that seems to be the hot thing
right now around here.

Was talking with a Deputy Sheriff a few
weeks ago and he informed me that 3
local churches had their AC Units stolen
off their concrete pads. It seems, they will
rob you blind for the copper in them.

Gutman

up here in Derbyshire there's alot of that activity going on as well.....

I use Oil for heating and there is currently a massive wave of heating oil theft going in around the UK...... Crooks follow the delivery tankers and siphone off the oil just after delivery......... my tank is in a locked out building but you never know.......

Just for the record - Heating Oil
Purchased in 2009 950 litres and invoiced at £435
Purchased 1 week ago 909 litres and Invoiced at £647

That's a 55% INCRREASE if you do the maths in the space of 2 years - thats the real inflation figure going on....!

Be Thankful if your a Gas (natural gas) user .......


Also......... This is Not a Politcal issue as the previous Government 'COULD HAVE' reduced the petrol duty if it has wished. BUT IT DIDN'T because easy money in the coffers.......... Now with our overspend and debt burden I feel SORRY for George Osbourne because what can he do ? What would you do ?

We will all have to get used to HAVING A BIT LESS i'm afraid............ we've had the good times and they were MIs Managed now we've got the bad times coming.........

Regards

PDUK

Last week when I filled up it was 1.11 per liter. That works out to about 4.20 a gallon. It's probably a bit more now.

Funny how the country that gets the cheapest gas, worries the most about the price increases.
I guess we worry less up here, because when it goes up here, it's good for the industry, although, it's not good for the consumer that has to cut back on other things.

If they start drilling into the gas and oil that is in the US, that hasn't been tapped into yet, prices may not go down like people expect, because the infrastructure and pipelines need maintenance, and that costs a lot of money. Especially with the complaints I've seen on the news lately about the US's pipelines getting too old, and not having proper shut off valves, and if the weather stays cold in the upcoming winters, pipelines have to be watched closer if they aren't buried deep enough.

If those pipelines aren't maintained properly, there will be more explosions when things go wrong.

The prices around me are between 3.40 to 3.70 a gallon, if they get much higher I'm not gonna cry T_T I have a very small car, and it's already costing me 35 to 40 USD, to fill up my car every week.

You can have cheaper gas but you will have to give up your FREE medical care. That's how we have cheaper stuff here in the US. We have to pay for our retirement as well. The less we put in over the years, the less we get out later. Plus we still have to pay a large portion of medical even in retirement.

We can afford to drive to the doctor. We just can't afford the treatment once we get there. Yours is the otherway around.

Here in the Okanagan in BC, gas is $1.19/Liter for regular, just came down from $1.24/Liter.

I dont know how that calculates into price per gallon, ($5.14??) but it's a bloody lot!

Hehe, guess you're right, i'll be kicking myself when i'm in urgent need of medical attention!
Seriously though I do beleive taxes and national expenditure have totally screwed up and government needs to take actual action, a complete audit followed by complete reform . Unfortunately in my opinion the government itself can't even account for a large portion of outgoings, let alone do anything about it, so the question is, who has the power to do something? Nobody, that's who!, we've given total control over to a game that makes its own rules! Great!

So in short... there was a time when we in Britain had cheap fuel AND a health service, that should be possible again someday! Peace
