Inflation my ar&& – it is pure tax

Petrol at 2p a litre! But you have to go to Venezuela, as UK comes third in league of world's most expensive fuel

Drivers pay on average 135p a litre for petrol in the UK, but that's considerably less than the price faced by drivers in Norway's capital Oslo: at 164p a litre it has the most expensive petrol in the world.

  • Not really HPC… but more you spend on fuel the less you have for housing and everything else….

    I worked in Saudi in 1993~94 and fuel was 1 Riyal (about 20p at the time) for 1 US gallon {about 3.8 litres}… so used to fill up to brim at each fill. Whereas as in the UK I hoard every drop and top up only what I need for each main journey.

    UK drivers have been stiffed for years – with a double tax…. fuel duty then VAT on the total price. From 4th January fuel duty has been £0.5895 per litre, and VAT is charged on the combined price of fuel and on the duty.

    Instead of riots that are more about spontaneuos looting…how about if everyone in the country takes a no drive day, no purchases from shops buy no petrol, no turn up for work, no staff to run transport, government offices, etc….then politicians may wake up and see whi really runs this country day in day out…rant rant rant….

  • It’s better to have a system based on a high duty for limited resources and lower taxation for individuals on lower incomes to make up. Allows choice. Helps encourage developments of alternatives; encourages use of shared systems rather than individual ones
