    Fuel prices have NEVER been this high. Even when there were the protests a few years ago.
    It is about time something was done. I recon most motorists are fed up of it all by now.

    Diesel crept up to average 133.1p in July 08 (http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice...view-2008.html), they were expensive fill-ups!

    Filled my vec with diesel on Friday and paid 121.9 !!!

    And is there a glimmer of hope with the election coming up? Is one party making a brave stand and offering the millions of drivers a carrot by promising to reduce the scandalous taxes we suffer?

    Hell no!

    We are the political cash cow and they intend to milk us dry.

    They will waffle on about global warming, C02 emissions, traffic congestion etc. What they don't refer to is the massive amounts of tax they get from everyone who turns a wheel (fuel duty, VAT on everything, road fund license e.g. tax, new car tax - an exciting new tax!). And how little they actually put back into the road system.

    I think that if, say, the Liberal Democrats said that they wouldn't increase fuel duty for the duration of the next parliament or, praise be, that they would decrease it, I reckon they'd gain a lot of votes. After all, there's precious little difference between the parties as it stands.

    The retail price of road fuel goes up by at least 2p per litre every 6 months, fact of life when living in the UK

    Thought I would treat my car to a little Shell V Power Diesel the other week. It was a mere 127.9. Still worth it though every now and then

    Exactly, and there lies the problem... They'll just continue to increase prices, population will continue to increase so more resources used, more money in for them...

    I honestly cant see how they think taxing can help global warming, are they trying to just tax people off the road because that's the only way those emissions will stop...

    Population control is the only answere to gloabal warming (if it exists) but which party is going to bring that up

    As for them groups on facebook etc - dont fill up on a certain day or certain supplier, you will the next so there's no point... a red diesel week might help tho, if everyone did it

    From what ive heard its planned that a boycott of petrol stations is happening on the
    1st May. I know im certainly doing it. Granted it doesnt make any difference on the 2nd but it gives them a rough idea on the trouble they could be in if we done it for a week. It shouldnt be a petrol boycott anyway. It should be where everyone puts in a week holiday at work so there would be no need to get fuel that whole week. that should and probably would make them learn
