Iraq war must be financed. and what other is hanging over our heads?
Hope that the bush administration and his nice "friends" will soon be gone. they are filling there pockets to start there next war.

Don't get me wrong, I am a usa fan but the people there don't seem to realize that they get ripped off by small elite group of people how want to rule the world.

So I hope that I don't ring the bells at the 'big brother' firm So i can visit the usa for vacation or buisnes in the future.

Oil is currently $135 a barrel - if it hadn't been for the Iraq war experts predict oil would be $40 at the moment.

http://www.independent.co.uk/environ...is-834023.html

That would mean a price for us of about 25p per litre without tax - with tax about 95p - so you see the oil price isn't Britain's biggest problem - it's the tax.

It's ironic that the 2 countries who are laughing all the way to the bank are Russia and Iran - they must love Bush and Blair..................

That is disgusting - even if he has to pay more than the supermarkets that is just greed - he could buy his fuel from the supermarlket and still make a killing!!!

Last year I went to fill up with red diesel there and laughed in his face when I saw the price. Your right he is good humored about it tho.
Went to brixham for the day to fill up instead at just over half the price.

I look at it another way I was ok with buying fuel when it was around the pound mark, so I'm unhappy with the bit over that so the pain is only 30 percent of what you feel

The price is high but so are his costs!
The fuel barge has to be maned 7 days a week & most of the time he is just sitting there! Speaking to the owner of Dartmouth & Salcombe fuel barges he says it is not one of his money making sides of his business & if it was not for the larger customers taking thousands of litres it would not be worth it!
But Having said all that I just get my tanks toped up be for the boat goes in & then use Jerrie tanks!
