That's funny, but sad at the same time because it's true!  bear_original

We've just heard here in he UK that we're gonna experience blockades and go slows on the motorways to protest as our petrol prices hit over £1+ per litre as against the prices in the EU etc, and as my family run a heavy goods workshop, and another business, it will hit us as well as everyone else -it's a worry.

Nancy, you're so right!

a couple of days ago it was $3 here in O'Brien-but we all took our business elsewhere and the new owner who thought he had us by the........lowered it back to $2.88

It's interesting that we aren't having inflation and the economy is great!

For whome exactly is the economy great?  Those who get to live on over !50-200 thou.?

I heard yesterday that gas and electricity prices are all set to rise in the UK too, apparently a knock-on effect of the oil prices (I think that's right?). We got our electricity bill this morning and it's way higher than this time last year :(.

Hubby just got home from work - apparently all the petrol stations he saw on his way had huge queues of cars outside them. People are panic buying.

Thank goodness for the light relief in this thread! bear_grin

I wanted to share this funny "gasoline Song" link.  It's good for a laugh ! Be forwarned that there is a bit of adult content in the lyrics- nothing really bad though. So don't open it if you don't want to.

Here in Perth the queues became so long that the police had to clear them.
The sale of scooters apparently has gone through the roof. And in the CBD the sale of push bikes is up. People have finally abandoned their cars for the train.
People are paying their petrol bills with electronic hardware. The servo's seem to becoming a hock shop. (it's more of a iou sort of thingy)
We have'nt seen the worst yet...........:(:(

We're facing protest blockades at petrol stations from tomorrow...we are looking at around £4.50/ $8 a gallon in the UK.

I might start walking to work...It would do me good anyway...


Not much fun here whichever way you look at it!!

The pumps at our Tesco petrol station were dry this morning. I think they'll be getting a delivery later today, but no doubt it won't last long. Not sure if it's my imagination, but the roads seem a lot quieter too. Obviously people aren't using their cars if they don't have to. It's scary to think that we're all so reliant on oil, and that a little panic buying or threat of one day action is enough to cause chaos.
