Welcome to the site Alex!

Thanks Adrian I feel I've had a very warm welcome here.
This may sound a little sad but the only way i access the net for now is at my local library so if anyone wants to chat to me they'd probably have more luck calling or texting me on

I have indeed! Hope to meet some friends nearby.
I saw a nice blue Dayvan in Boscombe parked up next to a red Ford Ranger pick up not so long ago. If you are the owner of either of these do shout me!

really really bad. i think at the moment we're paying £1.19 per litre petrol and £1.34 diesel. Its a real stinger if you don't have a steady income.. But i hear Mr Brown is going to lower our taxes to compensate (or so he says) so in theory all should be well..

Yeah Adrian is right, it is the tax, we get stung by tax the worst as far as petrol is concerned but im not going to let that dictate what i drive!

i pulled into the petrol station once more to find another rise to £1.39 for a litre petrol and £1.95 for a litre diesel! not a happy bunny.

Diesel is going through the rafters here in the USA, but the price is no where as dear as it sounds like over there.

On one topic, I can't see how you all cope with it, but yet you have the cars and lorries designed for it.

On the other hand - if it's on the rise in your part of the planet God help us all! I had not thought it could BE more expensive.

Have people begun putting hitching posts in their front yards yet?

The obvious other half being that anything that must be transported will now reflect the cost of the fuel to manage it.

Food
Goods
Parts
Service work
Transportation in general
(shipping)
I bet postage stamps are on the rise too
Etc...

If it cost something in fuel to put a thing in your local shop, pub, or store - watch it cost more now

All I can say is thank GOD for the internet!

As things are going at this point, the best way to go on vacation (holiday, as it is called in many places) is to cut a stave and wear good walking boots.

Mark my words here well - the cost of fuel being what it is will bring back the Age of Sail!

In a way, I think a modern version of it would be wonderful! Use the planet itself to deliver goods.
Surely some way can be found.
