Petrol Costs

I have not seen many people commenting on here about the price petrol is at and what it is set to go up to over the coming weeks / months.

Is it a taboo subject? do you just close your eyes and hum loudly when filling up your 200 litre fuel tank

I thought 1.12 at the supermarkets was bad enough - my boat holds 500L and I find these pretty good.....................
