  1. Just heard on the news interest rates have gone up again..

    Petrol will soon be $1.50 per litre.

    Cost of electricity and water will rise this year..

    Happy New Year hey... :eek:
  2. Yeah, and the price of oil going up wasn't even legit. Just some muppet who wanted to be the first to pay $100/barrel and get his name in the history books.


    But all you have to do is start a rumour to panic the oil market, or just to have an excuse to arbitrarily stick the price up.
  3. weve been paying that for some time :?
  4. Telling us to expect $1.75 before the end of the year ... that's here in the capital.
  5. Welcome to life in the UK....

    Before you know it it'll be drizzling 24/7, we'll be knee deep in beggars and dogsh*t and paying half a weeks wages for a pint of warm beer :grin: .
  6. Hmmm, its been close here i think.. I only use high octane and i know thats been $1.55 at some stages, so i assume regular unleaded isnt too far behind...
  7. The problem is some prick predicts that petrol will go up, so we expect it go up, so the oil companies can but it up with less complaint because people were expecting it.


    (Plus 95RON is already over $1.50 p/ltr)
