Default The cost of a gallon of petrol

This is grim reading

Diesel £1.81 a litre (depending on where you buy)
4.5 litres to a gallon.

1.81 x 4.5 = £8.15 a gallon.

My closest station is showing £1.93 for a litre of diesel and £1.91 for E10 petrol (mind you, it is consistently the most expensive station in my area). How soon until that number is over £2? I have also recently noticed myself thinking that anything below £1.70 is a really good price...

Cool

That was another reason for me selling the Bear, my V8 ZTT 400. When i attended the Frimley breakfast meet it was a round trip of 380 miles. I had to fill up to get there and fill up to get home. Those with a nervous twitch look away now.

Cost £130.



Oh! But the noise was worth it.

First part time job I had at College was working at a local petrol station (1976)
2 star was 35p a gallon
3 star 37p a gallon
4 star 38p a gallon

If you look at inflation over the years today for example 3 star would be around £2.45 a gallon

Just shows how taxation has increased massively over the years that and how much we're being taken overcharged

Anyone having thoughts of going electric due to fuel prices?
My driving has changed, I drive slower, probably accelerate slower and without doubt try to combine journeys. I have been surprised how may miles I am doing.

The cost of charging vehicles is rising fast as electricity prices rise. There's a worldwide crisis looming and governments are doing little to try to stop it.
