Yeah, I'm afraid. Fuel has that strange feature that it always gets more and more expensive, never cheaper :(

it got cheaper in the mid-late 90s.

it also became cheaper a few years after the embargo of '72.

Perhaps in the US. But for me it's far, far away and I live in Britain (in Poland it's not any better, though).

It's been said that the government can afford to lower the price by 12p a litre and STILL make a profit. They won't do it because they want us off the roads.

It's been said that the government can afford to lower the price by 12p a litre, STILL make a profit AND fund an expensive war

They won't do it because they want us off the roads

Seems that way
