    Its also the usual crap, even MSE are getting in the act now. Petrol prices could rise by 8%, its all could, may and might. Great bit of scaremongering in line with Sun and Daily Mirror reporting.

    A totally meaningless contribution from the OP

  • Anyone heard of the phrase "Peak Oil"?
    Forget about "Global Warming" and "The Credit Crunch" this is the main problem facing the world today.

    It doesn't mean we are going to run out of oil completely, it just means we cannot increase our production in line with demand.

    Just Google it and do a little bit of investigating.

    How do you fancy paying £6 £7 or even £10 per gallon?

    If what I've been finding out is true we could well be paying these kind of prices in the not too distant future. I mean in the next 3 to 5 years.

    This country is a Joke

    I have just returned from a holiday in france where diesel works out to be 90-95p a litre and unleaded around £1.05p litre
    why do we have to pay 25% for fuel and also subsidize frnch farmers
