Big difference with the UK. That's a relatively small area compared to North America. Hell, most of our provinces are larger than the UK AND you have an excellent public transit system. Here distances are much greater to travel and limited by a lack of decent options. That drains the motorist. Then you have the producers. Farmers, any manufacturer really and they have to move goods around. The greater the distance the more it costs. With increased fuel costs it adds to inflation. Now the motorist that is a consumer now is getting screwed in 2 directions.
