    what are the petrol prices in your area? (hubby asked me to ask you all)
    we was looking on the internet and there is ment to be a protest about the prices this sunday coming. i think the prices are getting pretty stupid now. lets hope that this solves something

    Petrol varies from 134.99 - 145.99 round here.

    Nothing will change cos the petrol companies are robbing gits and know that the public transport system is crap so we will all pay whatever they charge :mad:

    petrol is 136.9 and deisel is 145.9 at our local. Just means that our car only gets used when absolutely necessary, we can't afford to take the dogs anywhere nice for the day at those prices.
