What fuel shortage
« on: March 30, 2012, 07:52:47 AM »
Good god! The uk government by saying there may be a fuel shortage due to an impending strike (that the union says wont happen) instantly creates a fuel shortage by telling everyone to go and fill up, which they do!
Wtf?
Trying to get a few more pennies before the duty changes me thinks.

Looks like they are creating the reality they want. Wall Street, in the US, does it all the time.

Has this got anything to do with EU policies as far as you can tell? Anyone speculating on that?

Talk of strikes started because of the EU rules....but the panic buying
Quote
Demand for petrol rose 172% on Thursday, and diesel by 77%, according to independent retailers' group RMI Petrol.
was started by a government Minister saying people should stockpile fuel.

Fucking irresponsible twat and worse fucking stupid sheeple...we didn't have a shortage before hand...now we do...and worse than that the bastards at the fuel courts have increased the prices even more....it's now nearly ?1.50 a litre...that's 11 dollars a gallon folks!

 :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

Is that high because of the cost of fuel or taxes?

In the US, about 30% is federal, state and even county taxes.

It's that high because of taxes and fuel duty...we import most of our fuel but even so we pay the most per gallon in the world. So basically it's just tax!

And DB I only drive to work and to see Chantelle in the care home....around 500 miles a month and about  ?120 from my wallet...my road tax is ?240 a year and my insurance is ?500...have you seen the state of our roads? The potholes at the moment have totalled my wide rimmed alloys and they aint cheap to replace either! :(

Governments everywhere in the world are about the most wasteful and inefficient things human beings have ever come up with. Sometimes I think we should abolish all governments and establish a dudetopia and just slack and abide. Fuck government, its over rated!

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move  ;D
