Perhaps their claim for Tax relief should be treated in the same way as they have treated price reductions over the years - drip fed very very slowly and then hiked back up quickly with interest when the market rises again. Shame on the BBC for biased opinions.
This is absolutely outrageous behaviour by the oil companies. Blackmailing the British government, threatening to put 100,000 people out of work in order to maintain profit levels.
I think they are wrong slowing production to put the price up. Why cant the fuel carry on falling for all for a while. CHEATS and SCAMMERS they truely are
Scream and shout all you want nothing will ever change because us car owners motorists will pay any way no matter what the price and then the government wont do nothing as they no they have us by the balls and then the motorists arnt strong enough to protest as we all need our transport to get to work just a viscous never ending circle of legalised robbery that wont change same goes for gas bills electricity bills water and council tax it just seems we have to accept it these days and pay it any way.
Well said Quentin, we motorists have been paying for their salaries and bonuses for far too long to have any sympathy, now they are losing a bit. The Chancellor is trying to reduce the UK's debt, not to bail out multi-national oil companies!
What I want to know is why has petrol and diesel gone up 10p a litre in the past week, here in north Wales.
The oil companies have had it all their own way for a lot of years,the population who have had to pay the scandalous prices have struggled to such an extent that they end up not using their cars as they need to. Don't be so greedy oil companies and shareholders. BE SATISFIED that you are getting shares and profits. Not as much as you did perhaps ,but still a lot. We have had to struggle for years to get wage rises,they are being whittled away a lot by fuel prices ( vehicle and heating fuel ) ! Think of others as well as yourselves. We need a life as well as you ! We need a respite from the high prices much longer than this !!!
Haulage contractors have been heavily affected by oil prices over the years but we don't get help.
Starting to notice prices at the pump are starting to shoot back up (2 raises in the last week). Shame they never drop as quick.
I have to say, why didn't the pump prices drop to the level they should have done to truly reflect oil prices..? Who is responsible for setting pump prices? Yet again motorists and the transport industry will suffer after a stunted, brief price drop as they are rising again, as one person has commented two price rises in the last week, chances it will not stop there....
It is funny how in the news before Christmas the pundits were stating how we would see the prices of petrol go down the less than £1 a litre, by the new year well I've only seen it drop to around 104.9 now its starting to climb again back to 108.9, even at 104.9 it was too expensive to my mind, so I'm guessing that crude is up again or its the fuel companies taking the proverbial out of the motorist yet again
