Gas/petrol prices Thought for the day (mainly UK though applies universally)

#  The price of petrol is now (up to) £2 per litre (8 June 2022)

# The government blames the war in Ukraine for pushing the price of oil to £96 per barrel

# In June 2008 the price of a barrel of oil hit £109

#  But petrol was £1.19 per litre???

# When you fill your car it now costs on average £100 per tank of which

£35.84 was for production and wholesale costs
£9.71 for bio-fuel content allowance
£3.92 retailer profit
£1.12 delivery cost

£16.67 VAT
£32.74 duel duty
both payable to the UK Government

This is 50% of the cost.

The higher the price the more money the government makes.

We are being ripped off by our own government.

That’s why there are doing nothing to help you!
