The Price of Petrol

Here is the Shell garage on Dowson Road open on Christmas Day when the price of petrol was 123.9 pence per litre.

The day before it had been 122.9ppl.

Yesterday it had gone up to 124.9ppl.

I wonder what it will be tomorrow.

This must be a great 'theme', comparing prices around the world. Over here, it ranges between 1,40 € and 1,60 € per litre. Petrol for heating this year we paid about 0,80 € per litre, and our landlord turns the heating on for about two hours a day !

Time for spring to arrive ! Please have a good Friday.

I don't have an issue with it tbh, despite owning a car.

Roadsides & pavements are becoming less of a 'public highway' - more of a 'motor'way & free public carpark.

Given the numbers of vehicles on the roads, it's pretty difficult for anyone to justify the existence of what the media call the 'War on the Motorist' - it's just a myth.

The roads are too busy for little benefit to anyone. If it takes a rise in the price of motoring to make people look at how they travel a mile or so here & there, then bring it on.

P.S: On a less ranty/soapboxy note Gerald, Happy New Year :>D

Gas prices were Leif's topic today, too.

The petrol station nearest Chez la Vache is selling regular (87 octane) for the equivalent of 2.15 Pounds per gallon today. If «Louis» has done the conversion correctly, that works out to 1.89 pounds per litre.

Talk about UP! Going up all over here too.

I make £2.15 per (English) gallon something less than 50p per litre. When I first started to drive (in 1968) I would put 4 gallons of petrol in the tank each Friday on my way home from work and got change from a pound note. It was something like four shillings and sixpence a gallon in old money.

Perhaps you could run a competition to guess how much the petrol will cost on a certain day. A local transport company here has said today that it might have to close, as their fuel costs have risen so much. Also Nottingham City Transport said that it might have to cut some buses out of the timetable
