Morrisons on Preston docks this morning, queueing back onto the main road, and same again tonight on the home.

Remember the last petrol chaos, nearly missed the Watford game at home-We were 2-0 up after ten mins, and remember singing to both the Watford fans..."What a waste of petrol!".

Watford won 4-3.

If people dont all rush to the filling stations and panic buy then theres about 10 weeks supply left. If people act like the retarted idiots they appear to be and rush out and fill their car up, the bath and the hot water system with petrol, then yes there will be shortages. the reason there was a problem a few years ago was because the fuel from all depots was cut off by the picket lines.

interesting prices..outrageous

why cant wagons be allowed to use red fuel and help lower the overheads and wtf is 0.9p......con

My mate in the oil depot on Whalley Range does a roaring trade selling red diesel to local residents turning up to have 5 gallon drums filled. Odd really cos I've never ever seen any agricultural tractors in that neck of the woods. :glare:

I thought the interpretation was that the new tax / emissions rules are to be applied to cars UP TO 7 years old?

btw from that news item.... "Chancellor Alistair Darling said the changes would come into effect from next April, and raise an additional £1.2bn in revenue by March 2011"

There can be few finer examples of Freudian slips than that! Basically he's saying 'Sod the environment that is of little consequence, whats really important is that I've found another way to scam big money out of the population'.

Him and Brown really must be the reincarnation of King John and the Sheriff of Nottingham!

Classic example of cost-push inflation happening at the moment in the economy. Increased fuel prices means increased costs for firms and hence they hike their prices up and it's the consumers who ultimately lose out. Noticed bus fares have gone up 20p from the beginning of this week and even more distrubing is my discovery of an extra 10p slapped on the cost of a pasty. Bleak times indeed.

Spot on Theno,

If they were interested in the invironment they would legislate that cars etc could only be manufactured to comply with the speed limits they have set!
