    The best idea is all buy from one outlet to force the others to lower their prices, unfortunately the British public havn't got the get up and go of other countries and are happy to sit back and pay up.

    Things like this never take off.

    Can't remeber the exact figure but I'm sure the goverment takes about 60 - 70p for every litre of petrol sold but someone may know the exact figure

    Government 101.

    Governments 'tax' and 'spend'.

    You want to reduce the amount they 'tax' - how about reducing the amount they 'spend'?
