As I said before - is there any way of telling if we are getting shafted more in this country than others?
Take a look at this:
Despite the general whingeing that goes on from the Swansea massive, we're paying the same (+ or - a few cents) for unleaded as Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Finland, Portugal, Norway and Denmark. All countries with a comparable standard of living.
Looking at the european countries that are substantially cheaper:
Greece, Spain, Baltic states - you simply don't earn the same amount of money there, so everything is always going to be relatively cheaper.
