The big problems is that we are all so very dependant on diesel and petrol for our everyday lives, they have to pardon a pun, got us 'over a barrel'.
If you dont but on one particular day whay happens, you either prepare and buy the day before or the day after, the oil companies still get your money.
The oil company is greedy and so is the government, not just the present one but the one before it as well.
We do need to do something though, but what, something that will hit them both in the pocket long term and now. Sell our cars and walk !!
