    From here.
    But the price he has for 2007 - 87.9p (prob from start of the year) has gone up around 13-14p this year!!!!! More than any other year in this table.

    agreed ed, when I first started driving around 1976 it was about 70p a gallon, or 1 sheckel and a goat to fill up, typical labour, useless bit of info but with things like the smoking ban etc etc there are apparently now over 4000 things you cannot do anymore since they have been in, obviously most dont affect everyone but talk about big brother states, urgg, rant over and Merry Christmas (if i can still say that) to one and all

    You watch in the near future we will want to emigrate to Russia, they will soon have a better standard of living than us. In some respects they already have.

    I can remember seeing petrol at 37 pence per litre.... That's along time ago now, I'd have been about 12 years old or so.

    Damn yes, what's most alarming is how prices have changed since 1997. Reasonably consistent with inflation up to that point.
    Worth remembering that the cost of living in general has gone through the roof too though - a pound today is "worth" a lot less than it was in 1985, for everything.
