Has anyone noticed how much the price has risen in the past week, the garage close to me on monday was charging 1-34.9, it is now 1-39.9, per litre. is this just a case of garages, conning the poor motorist, or have the oil companies put 5 pence on in a week. Also herd of customers putting fuel in there vehicles, and nothing coming out of the pumps, but still being charged and only realising when they have left the garage, any one else heard of this...

Probably a bit of both. The Shell in moreton was 133.9 last friday and the woman working there got a phone call from the franchise owner asking her what the price of petrol there was and he told her to add a penny on to the price straight away so she had to close up to change the price instead of waiting until the end of the day. A couple of days later I noticed it was 135.9. The BP on the Meols stretch (so literally a couple of minutes away) was 140.9 last week so I dread to think what it is now. I haven't heard anything about people being charged for petrol and not getting any. It depends how much you put in. If you only put in 5 or so it rarely registers on the gauge so might look like you haven't got anything but been charged for it.

No surprise- any excuse to inflate oil prices- tension in iran etc... also for the past 50 years the government have got you used to planning your life with have a car involved knowing that we still need to travel some cases where public transport are out of the question. I wish I could have the option of using bus etc then again, they are getting pricey too.

Well I know a few weeks ago, Iran either threatened to stop their oil supply to us or actually did cant quite remember. So that seems the most logical reason as to why it has gone up, plus with Iran threatening to close the "Strait of Hormuz" if they do that it will go up even more I suspect. Its just another way to get more money out of us!

The sooner it hits 2.00 per litre, the better imho. Maybe drivers will then drive less like morons/formula 1 drivers, and also it will keep the peasants off the road so I can get to where I'm going with less hassle.

I find it most interesting that 90% of people seem to moan about the price of fuel, and yet 90% of people raz around like the cost is no object to them, 70mph on the motorway is far less efficient than 60mph and yet everyone seems to do 70, if it was really hurting, they would set off 2 minutes earlier and drive a little slower, thus making a considerable saving (isn't it as much as 20% more fuel to do 70 over 60 in the average car?). Tear arsing away from lights, and then braking harshly as you get to junctions and lights etc, is not economical. Why do so many people buy 1.2 litre Corsas and the like, and then want to drive at 75+ on the motorway. I've never seen so many new cars on the road as I have lately, and yet people are struggling to meet the cost of fuel??

You can't have your cake and eat it. If you can't afford to drive, don't do it, simples.

prob is matt is it drives up the price of everything else, your reasons for wanting it to go up are selfish.

Sorry brother I still love you though smile

I don't care about the prices of everything else. It will hit 2.00 per litre sooner or later, by holding off tax rises etc, you're only delaying the inevitable.

Even without duty increases, the price will hit 2.00 per litre one day, the market price of oil ultimately dictates the price to the end user.

Still don't understand how people can say its "hurting" them, and then pay through the nose for new cars, and drive like forumla one drivers, thus using considerably more fuel than if they just drove efficiently.

Of course you still love me, you love me like the world loves oil, and I love you too! laugh
