Petrol rise

I just heard on the radio that you guys in the UK are about to suffer yet another petrol tax increase? They were saying the gobblement have been asked to delay it.

What is that about?!

How much tax is needed from petrol?? Why delay it, is it really needed?

What will this make the price of petrol in marinas?

If they put up petrol prices now who would vote for them.
so whomever gets in next will have this thrust upon from the very outset.

well the petrol price has been going up at my local BP at about a 1p every second day or so for the last week or so... now at 118p Tesco are still at 113p at 18mpg every 5p counts.
