    Fuel protests return

    Haulage companies are planning to blockade oil refineries on September 14 as a protest against escalating fuel prices.

    Pump prices in the UK have hit record highs after hurricane Katrina, which devastated the east coast of America two weeks ago, took out a number of US production plants.

    In many petrol stations customers have been forced to pay over a pound a litre for petrol and even more for diesel. That's $2.37 (AU).

  2. It's a common rule that when visiting the UK you simply pay 50 to 75% more "for everything".

    It just makes UK fuel cost about 60% more than here - about right for a tourist.........

    Pity bike hire is very (very very very) expensive over there!
  3. I'm swiching to a 250 as a comuter... go the mighty CBX... I care less for fuel prices...
