Crawing over the price of petrol

I don't know if this is the same rook that I saw dancing on market stall roofs a few weeks back, but recently I saw it crawing over the price of petrol at Morrisons supermarket.

Here in January 2007 unleaded was 85.9 pence per litre and city diesel 89.9 ppl. By December 2007 the cost had risen 15p & 16p to 100.9 and 105.9 ppl. Now it is up a further 7p and 13p to 107.9 and 118.9 ppl respectively.

The price of petrol (or gas as the Americans call it) is a recurring theme among CDPBs. As a non-car-driver these days it doesn't directly concern me on a daily basis, but I do notice the rises.

It's no wonder some of our relatives are actively planning a move to the USA.

Here, gas or petrol is a dollar cheaper now than at it's height at the beginning of summer.

No such reductions in ol' blighty.

Up, up and away. (ours has come down though to $3.50 from $4.65 in August).
Too bad our stock market is going down, down, down.
CONGRATULATIONS on being shortlisted for the AWARD! way to go.

£1.19 converts to $2.30 Canadian. Prices are at record lows at the moment and gas is about $1.20/litre in Vancouver.
I always tell people, if something costs a dollar here it costs a pound in Britain.
I don't own a car either Gerald, I know fuel prices affect all aspects of the economy but the price at the pumps is just a curiosity for me.

Very interesting and popular choice for 'L'. Petrol prices are soaring high in Mumbai too, at Rs. 56 a litre.
Congratulations on being nominated for the Award. Best wishes from Mumbai.

Gail & I both have cars, although we only really use one. I cycle to work, so we try not to use too much petrol. The cost seems to have levelled out a bit now and it's about the same price as pure orange juice. With or without the juicy bits.

If we had a better public transportation system here, I would definitely take it. California has one of the highest gas prices, but happy that it's been steadily going down.
