The issue here is that it helps the wrong people
if you live in town and only do a few miles per year then you will be better off, but these are the people who have access to good public transport and because they are only doing a few miles per year really donít need a car
but people who really need a car because they are doing hundreds of miles a day either between cities or because they live in the remoter parts of the country will get hit because they will have no alternative but to drive
I worked out how much it would cost me currently to do my typical business trip by public transport. It would only cost four times as much when you compare fuel to tickets but the time required to make connections etc meant I couldnít do it in a day and in fact it might even be tricky to do it in two days.
So how can I do my job with out using my car
and the answer is I couldnít
Still back to ribs, if you think the government will not take this opportunity to hit fuel used on boats you havenít been paying attentions
