Read about it in the paper today. `bout time too, i paid 1.06 per litre of deisel today, cost me 71.10 to fill up my Transporter! Thats far too much. Are prices now more than at the time of the last blockade? When was that 5, 6 years ago?

Yes - it was just over 7 years ago, and the price rise is pretty much in line with inflation... ...whereas the price of oil has roughly doubled in that time.

Word has it that fuel needs to double in price to realistically make us think about our driving activities.

fair point the cost of oil in £ has only risen by about 40% in that time.

Double in price from now? Or double from when it was half what it is now?
