ADD YOUR OWN COMMENTS BELOW THIS POST. THEY ARE VERY WELCOME
Thanks Quentin for taking the fuel fight to the government on our behalf, don't give up the fight, Thank you
you are right to say they are totally out of touch.
We all know this time tomorrow we'll be sitting here seething over that prat Osbourne's decision to add more duty to fuel. So what do we do next, they are and will continue to ignore us, what WON'T they ignore? At this rate, we'll be heading down the same road as Greece.
If Osborne does approve of the 3p rise...
I agree with Fred. Isn`t it funny how the price has been fairly stable the past few weeks but just before the budget it goes up by another two pence. just in time for Osbourne to knock two pence off.They must think we are all MORONS.
The price of road fuel, diesel in particular, is a disgrace. I order our bulk fuel and I paid 118.00ppl VAT for a delivery last Friday. That's 36000ltr at less than 0.5p per litre than Asda were selling it.
I live near Worcester and most of the garages around here charge £1.47.9 or £1.48.9 per litre of diesel. The price has been creeping up over the past week! Why? Quentin, I support your cause all the way, I have printed out forms and intend to get everyone to sign up.
This government aint interested in wot the people say u lobbyed them and they havent listened the people are staging fuel protests up and down the country and now things have gone to far Quinten, peter carroll why wont u listen may if you got behind the people this government will have to listen weve been saying this for months and yet u just dont listen the RHA and urselves are gonna keep campaigning wot is the use its DIRECT ACTION thats required if you back us we will help you win and maybe we can get fuel down to european prices £1.10 to £1.15 a ltr so join us
My mate lives in Northumberland and he's paying 153.9ppl, beat that!! It's absolutely disgusting!
Action is not only now called for but is now being taken!
I am an OAP with Osteoporosis and need my car but will be unable to pay such high prices for Diesel, I have never voted for this government and never will,they will always look after their own greedy members.So roll on the next election and get rid of them.
This is a terrible situation, only getting worse. Trouble is, even if the Tories do get kicked out at the next election, Labour won't be any different - they too need to fund their spending habits like a demented crack addict.
I live in a rural community and need our car for travel eg.doctors ,supermarket etc in fact everyday living.We have what amounts to a poor bus service.The price of fuel here has already risen beyond the prices of urban areas having cost £147.9 for the last few weeks. Since the threat of the tanker strike the price has already risen.I think we may need to re-mortgage the house to pay for the next tank refill.
I travel 60 miles a day to work and back i currently spend at least £60 on petrol if i did not have a car i would not be able to work as the transport links to my place of work are non existent and what is a 40 minute journey would take at least 4 hours if i made all the right connections also public transport from where i work ceases after 8.oopm and as i frequently work past 9.30pm without a car i would have no means of getting home so if i want to work i have no choice but to pay if the government wanted to help they could start by stopping the tax on tax which a rough calculation shows they could cut prices by at least 12p per litre the price of crude oil and the £ to $ has been quite stable for a long time but the price keeps going up why?i am fed up with the constant change of excuse by all the parties involved for the ever increasing price there is no excuse maybe if we as motorists went on strike and cut everybody's revenue stream something might get done.
This talking abouth prices dont work .you need action block the main roads. m25 m1a14a 12 agee a date and time.to stop your lorry truck carr where you are on the road. for just 2 hour and the country stand still tell the minister we need a answere on the prices. that the go down with 20p or we stop for a day.see how the shake we win!!! in holland years back it did work why not here??? Action nu bulshit talking
IT IS TIME FOR MORE DIRECT ACTION BUT RATHER THAN BLOCKADING MAJOR RODS IN AND OUT OF OUR CITIES WHICH ONLY SERVES TO DISADVANTAGE THE INNOCENT I PROPOSE THAT PETROL STATIONS BE BLOCKADED BY COMPANY ON ANY GIVEN DAY.FOR EXAMPLE...MONDAYS...BP...TUESDAY...SHELL...WEDNESDAY...TOTAL AND SO ON. CAMORONS GOVERNMENT TOOK 32 MILLION IN EXTRA REVENUE ON PANIC DAY...HIT THE FUEL COMPANIES WHERE IT HITS US...ON THE FORECOURTS.
The ever increasing cost of fuel is a disgrace and I totally agree with the post above. I am sure the large oil companies would have something to add if they were boycotted on a particular day and think of the headlines for the fair fuel campaign!!
£1.48 is expensive, but it would be wonderful to get it that cheap where i live [Isle of Jura Scotland]. We pay £1.60 for bog standard diesel, and it was £1.56 on 1 Jan 2012. I don't know what happened to the subsidy for remote areas, but it doesn't seem to have kicked in on the scottish islands. Frankly, our diesel should be the price it is in the South while the price of diesel in London and the South East deserves to be higher, where there is a comprehensive and excellent public transport system, and before you try to moan from down there in the south, don't even think about it. We have two buses a day to the main settlement for food, doctor and the rest, with a boat in the middle.
Just filled up the car paid £138.9 for diesel much better than the £150.9 a ltr currently on sale some 8 miles away at Rownhams Services (Esso) on the M27, WHAT A RIP OFF!
