fuel prices

So the Tories have come up with some half baked bribe for the 4X4 self interested lot... but, when I looked at how the fuel price is broken down, I began to grudgingly accept that they may actually have a point. The amount that actually goes to the retailer is ridiculous, especially when compared to the amout in both fuel duty and VAT.

The Green lobby will probably say this is a good thing but, at least in the short term, this escalation is going to have a big impact.

Footnote: I had the shift key held down when typing 4X4 and it came out $X$... QWERTY keyboards work in mysterious ways.
