    Default Price of fuel

    drywallschool.com

    Whats the price of fuel was in your area? I paid 1.20 a litre yesterday.

    This works out at around 5.44 GBP a gallon to our friends in the US ($7.29), Canada ($7.48) and Oz ($8.08)

    I paid 1.169 for diesel yesterday. Passed one petrol station selling at 1.249. Rip off Britain!

    Yep 1.20 here, we find it cheaper to stay away and put in a few more hrs in on site then to travel, time you added fuel and driving time.
    We start 57 flats & corridors the Tuesday after Easter the distance is 80 miles each way to travel, so that with fuel prices it will work out cheaper to stay, 40 for a twin b&b plus you can put more hrs in on site. better the trying to get to the M25 before the rush hr every night. So yeah fuel is a killer and its gonna get worse again. 2 years ago we were paying 1.27!

    1.19 here & thats super market price. Now they have put all the small garages out of business
    they charge top $ for it.

    I now try to work within 25 miles of home any more & we will have to add it to the job.

    This whole fuel rise malarky will only increase inflation as 90% of all products are carried by road.

    I remember the fuel blockades of 2000 and my full tanks of fuel barely got me through that experience. A local garage sold , sorry I meant to say, held the local motorists to ransom and charged 1.99 a litre for unleaded and their customers never forgave them for that. The site is a block of flats now.

    Maybe a wee shake up is needed again.

    Funny this should be mentioned we were just discussing this on the way home from the match. Whether its fuel prices, food prices, or anything else it is impossible to get away from the fact that Britain must be the most taxed country in the world and this will only get worse as the years go on. VAT? what the f*%@'s that all about apart from another earner for the Government-come the revolution comrades!!!!!!

    The prices in Holland a month ago were 1.07 for diesel and ....wait for it.

    1.46 a litre for unleaded.

    Just strange how the prices of fuel fluctuate massively depending on where you are in the world. I was in South Africa last year and it was only around 50p a litre. Its costs the same for a barrel of crude oil whichever country you live in (paid in US dollars), the only difference in price is the petrol companies profit and more importantly how much the goverment skims off the top in tax which just happens to be the lions share.

    If they invested some money on the roads filling the potholes I wouldnt be so angry.

    we spend silly money on diesel (when we're working that is, not at the minute!!) ive been wanting to try some bio fuel for ages but just havent had the balls to try it, it'd be just my luck to screw the engine up.I've been waiting for someone else to try it to see if theres any long term effects, Worst i've heard so far is that the fuel filter needs changing more regularly and that it can be difficult to get hold of sometimes

    Went to check the Bio Diesel out today , but the guy had sold out till Friday( so the guy who runs the unit next door told me ) . My Brother in law has been using it in his Peugeot expert and has had no problems so far . he did say the only thing is that each batch gets snapped up quick . Ive seen a few Info websites and different receipes etc i'll get more info when i speak to the guy direct .
