    Default Fuel Prices

    The recent price hikes were allegedly down to the high price per barrel of oil.Now that the price has dropped, isn't it amazing how the prices have remained the same at the pumps?

    Yeah, I just got my 2.2 after getting rid of my old LPG Mondeo... I miss the running costs but not the car . if LPG is so cheap (which it is) then why does more people not use it?

    Cost of conversion verses pay back time. If I were to look at 2 cars, one had lpg and the other didn't, I would be buying the lpg one!

    It may take a few days to use up the old fuel in the pumps before they can pass on the reduced cost, but I'm not holding my breath for that one!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I filled up today with Diesel at my local Tesco @ £107.9, I was quite excited that it had dropped 2p a litre, is this the world we are living in that £107.9p for diesel is acceptable?

    My car runs on LPG.......4-6 weeks ago before the price hike it was 38.9p.


    Petrol went up about 5-7p per litre.

    LPG went up by 11p!! its now 49.9p and will never come back down in price....the governments way of pricing people out of using LPG it will not be long before using it is not cost effective.

    It now costs me £10 more to fill up with gas in just a month!!

    Stupid ****** government!

    Dont forget its only subserdised for a couple of more years.... and they are pushing through ( in not done ) legalisation to tax crop products... eg bio fuel.

    It's just b0ll0cks!!!

    Oil goes up = Price at the pump goes up/household bills go up

    Oil comes down = Nothing happens !!!

    Still the possibility of another 2p a litre in April
