    Angry Rip off Britain

    I read this in a motoring magazine:

    "Before we sit back, accept the extortionate price of fuel prices in this country and blame it on the $100-a-barrel oil prices, let's dig a little deeper. The current exchange rate is around two dollars to the pound, so a $100 barrel of crude costs around £50.

    A few years ago, when a barrel cost $75, the rate was $1.50 to the pound, which equated to £50 a barrel! So fuel prices have gone up, even though the price of fuel has effectively remained the same. The oil companies and supermarkets are ripping us off, and will continue to feed us the line they are trading in a difficult industry, even though a rise in price of only one pence a litre boosts their profits with millions of pounds."

    Britain - Charge the maximum you think the public will pay not your best price
