Oh No !! Do they want us to get out of this triple recession or not ????!!!!!
Help self employed & small businesses as we bring in tax , or send us bankrupt through petrol prices & you will stop collecting millions of taxes to get you into recovery. Your choice government either listen to common sense or take us down ! :/

The petrol retailers seem hell-bent on defying all logic. The Office of Fair Trading simply MUST look into the business behaviour of the retailers. At the moment they seem to want to hold a metaphorical gun to the heads of all motorists in the UK regardless of the massive harm that they are inflicting on the economy. Inj my humble view, they are nothing less than blatant profiteers and economic blackmailers!!!

Oh thats just great.Triple dip recession is now inevitable.How much longer are the oil companies going to be allowed to hold us to ransom? they have done it again!!
The whole oil industry needs thorougly investigating to stop speculation and price manipulation as it is doing so much damage.We will be stuck in recession for many years the way things are going but maybe thats what they want ... payback time for the western world!!

Is this pending rise being brought about by speculators or manipulators?

Perhaps it is time for us to buy collectively.

Our Governments fail to understand that by increasing fuel costs it has a serious knock on effect. Travel to work becomes more expensive, some people have to give up work because travel costs are too expensive. Transport of food especially becomes more expensive as does all other commodities. Retailers are forced to increase prices and people cannot afford to spend the same way. Thereby retailers and businesses cut staff or close causing the loss of jobs and thereby there is an increase in unemployed claiming benefit. The government then has to increase outgoings in benefit payments. Pensioners cannot go unemployed and suffer because they cannot increase their allowances. Everyone pays more except MP's who increase their claims.
All governments seem to have no fresh ideas, put the fuel up is their norm.

Since the "green" bandwaggon was embraced by both T Blair & G Brown's governments & used as an excuse to increase taxes on road fuel & other energy supplies, the outcome in terms of level's of taxation we have now was inevitable, (no government will work long term to really help motorists, apart from the gimmicks in suspending tax rises we had recently, we are their money pit!! The present governmemnt that appears to be dominated by the junior partners in terms of policy, will never do anything to resolve this issue & bring justice to the majority of the population (ie: all of us who use private & public transport).

The oil industry is guilty of all sorts of actions to increase their take, (I don't blame the retailers though), but the real villian in all this must be our government, who hestitate to set up enquiries where it would really help, but prefer to waste time on gay marrage & other such nonsence, while stinging us all at the pumps & through the energy bills that subsidise yet more "green" wastes of money, sorry - initiatives.

As Alastair King said in a prevous post - no new ideas just more of the same!!!
