Re: UK Fuel crisis

From:Richard Pitman <> (by way of histonet)


Crisis appears to lifting. Probably wait a while for fuel to reach the
stations, now the tanker drivers are working again. Most of the population
support this demo against high fuel taxes.

Unleaded fuel costs approx 0.82 UK pounds per litre, depending where in UK
you buy it.

A CB600F is a Honda motorcycle.

Best wishes, Richard

My sympathy (and a few hundred gallons of virtual petrol) to you Brits!

Here in Houston, the going rate for a gallon of regular unleaded is
$1.44.  What's the rate across the pond?
