    Totally agree

    Just heard about that. I will certainly be filling up on way home from work just in case.

    This is about pay for the fuel workers, as opposed to the oil prices. :thumbsup:

    How come, they go on strike at about 98.9 a litre but wait until it reaches 130p!! before they do ANYTHING?!?!

    B***dy hell!!

    I agree about the disgusting prices for our fuel -
    but they are stricking about the lorry drivers pay NOT fuel prices!

    In Edinburgh all the lorry drivers were coming from all over Sotland to protest.. Finally..:)

    but hopefully it will get them to lower the petrol price aswel

    The opposite will happen.

    yeah, because they have to pay their drivers more, they have to charge more..:-(

    I agree, dont be surprised if we are paying £2 per litre by the end of the year.:x

    That's a ripple in the ocean compared to the cost disruption this will cause and will be recouped in medium term prices. The drop in supply will of course push prices up in the short term also.

    And will make that the PERMANENT price :-(

    It always makes me titter when these strikes happen, people still use the same ammount of petrol whether the strike is on or not, they just fill up before, or after

    seconded...£1.50 by the summer..:-(

    And we're all happy aren't we.....he said sarcasticly...

    Depends on the market.

    Not now-a-days,its the greedy b******s at the forecourts and the government!!

    Sorry, but the really does get me angry!

    so i guess we haven't found the oil fields in irag and Afghanistan.
    or maybe we did but got bullied by the yanks to give it up as usual:roll:

    Probably.


    We always lose out.

    how mch do u fill up a wekk? and how much does it cost u?

    just been to get fuel and not because of the strike but because i needed it and it was disgusting people being stupid cue jumping and what not playing silly bug***s about it all

    Craig david;2286366

    how mch do u fill up a wekk? and how much does it cost u?



    About £50 because we have a diesel car

    What about you?

    this strike is about the greedy truck drivers who want a decent pay rise after all they only earn between 35_39 grand they dont care about the price of fuel or the public they are just as gready as the government

    Its ridiculous considering the amount of profits oil companies have. They could easily negotiate decent pay for drivers and still have huge profits without hiking the prices up further!
