Can see all sorts of changes ahead. People will be staying at home to look after the kids instead of driving them to the childminder or nursery.Too expensive on top of childcare costs. Many people will be changing jobs so commuting costs are reduced.

I think the idea of car sharing will become more normal to reduce costs.

every penny reduction in duty is 500 Million out of government coffers.
It would need to come from somewhere.

Look at rising oil prices rather than duty, we pay the most in Europe, but not by much!

I have been talking about this all week. If the govt capped it at 20p instead of of 20% of the total it should be a big difference. I think this could be an election winner, coz its getting to the point were anyone with a decent commute is getting really hit in the pocket
#6
If it gets to £2 a litre, I'm going to have to give up driving! :(
#7
80% is goverment tax W.....s hitting us all by all angles cost of living is on the up in a big way............second job on the cards if you can find one

I already drive. have done for many years and I fully understand the impact of going from paying less than £40 to fill up a 60 litre tank to paying almost £90 now. so please....dont try to weigh this up as ground breaking news.


IF it happens, and a big if, it wont be for several years yet and I will do what everyone else will do.....adapt to it.
#14
I think the govt. Will have to act if it gets much higher. Personally it thought the fuel tax stabiliser was a great idea

if it happens in several years your wishing more like a few months.....so instead of paying 90. quid for a tank be almost double that .....how do u adapt to those sort of price increases ???????

I heard something today that made me well and treuly L.O.L............... George Osborne saying he knows how it feels with us having to pay this extortionate petrol price....... What the hell would he know he claims all his petrol on his expenses as do all mp's, we are paying for their petrol.
What an imbicile!

Even if it was not paid for by expenses, he is a multi millionaire so its not likely to affect him too greatly. But interesting that he 'says' he understands so well........

I get the bus to work which is about 30% of the price I pay at the moment for using my car. I sell my car, get money for it, and I save more as I dont need to maintain or tax it. You see when the government price people out of running their cars they actually lose money.

Simplified economic model.

Fuel prices increase which will lead to food etc prices rising. This will cause inflation. To tackle inflation bank of England puts up interest rates. This, coupled with ludicrous fuel prices means people will have no choice but to stop spending and we will end up back in recession whilst the real cause of inflation (fuel prices £2+) will still not have been tackled. That's my understanding with my limited economic understanding.
#22
adapting is what is wrong with people in this country! why should we be adapting? we're being taken advantage of and being milked to the hilt in every way possible, if the petrol gets to £2 alot of courier and haulage companies are going to go out of business, thats mass unemployment in one foul swoop, mass rise in food and beverage prices it will all have a major knock on effect.

The problem is people in this country have taken this S%$T for so damn long now that when the government say jump the people say how high.

Just think what this country is going to be like for a children when they grow up? and look what it is like for them now.

Sitting on hands and accepting and adapting is not going to get things sorted!

A quick google suggests otherwise. His family are minted and so is he.

correct me if I'm wrong but the majority of the UK voting population must have put the government in power so why are we blaming the government?

They didn't though did they, hence the coalition government, because no party had a majority.

Osborne's massive private wealth is another worry for Tory strategists. He was once asked by a journalist if he was too posh to govern. The reply from the 18th baronetcy-in-waiting was: "It's not as if I grew up in a stately home with a deer park." He could have fooled us.

The son of Sir Peter George Osborne and Felicity Loxton-Peacock, he is the heir to a baronetcy that dates back to 1629 and he has a 15% stake in his family's wallpaper firm, Osborne & Little, which is worth, at a conservative estimate, £15million.

It's why eyebrows were raised among the party hierarchy when he became embroiled in the expenses scandal and was ordered to repay £1,666.

How, they said, could a future Chancellor and multi-millionaire overclaim mortgage payments on his second home (as well as putting in a £121 bill for servicing his Aga)?

He had form. A few years earlier the heir to the Osborne empire had offered donors the chance to fund his Commons office directly, a fact he failed to mention in the Commons register, which drew another rebuke from the standards watchdog.

etc, etc, etc, If not technically a multi millionaire yet then he is one in waiting but definitely not needing to seek a second job to make ends meet.......

We had fuel protests in 1999 and 2005 when the price was way lower, why isnt farmer Jim starting one now?

I've been wondering the same, though have read there was supposed to be some sort of protest but never saw anything on new or owt, think it's some kind of media blackout with things like that at the min.
The whole thing is total toss.

Apart from a few comments this reads like a Daily Mail/Sun Reader poll.
Although to be fair to the sun they are campeigning at the moment to FREEZE fuel duty which is significantly more common sense than i gave the Sun credit for.

Those calling for a reduction are foolish.

I think that's why the stabiliser concept is good one. A reduction may not be feasible but having limits is sensible as these huge shifts in price will only serve to pull our economy more into the mire.

Am very worried about this....£2 a litre would mean I can no longer afford to drive my car (or at least would mean something else along the way needs to be cut). The Govt need to sort this, its ridiculous
#38
You lot voted them in and look what their doing, Cut's after cut's then put prises up, Make people redundant and make less work available.

Then their excuse is: blame Labour

We all agree to a certain degree, Most MP's have never done a honest day's work all their lives, Most of us are born into poverty, While they get fat on our taxes.

not really no, its 10 years old, a 1.4 ghia that is about 25 mpg, is that bad?
my omega used to do 17,mpg (which is what is quoted everywhere)




I'd expect it to average around 33-37 mpg, However around town you'll be looking closer to 25-30 mpg.

But no body voted any party in, it's a coalition as no party gained a majority
