    Oil has snuck up to $58 without anyone noticing. As oil is traded in barrels, the £/$ exchange rate is hurting us too. WTI was $58.11 yesterday; Brent was $56.99. £ was $1.519.

    If you look at the oil companies profits for Q1 2009 you'll see that refining margins are up - the refiners are selling wholesale petrol for more money. Quite a few refinieries worldwide have been shut in for long maintenance or with issues. Less capacity in the world market, so prices are up a bit.

    Once it creeps over psychological £1 barrier think rate of increase will get worse, that's what happened last time around :(

    Yep. Oil companies barely own any of the petrol stations. Most are franchise. But you know that they own all the ones at motorway services where they charge you an extra 5 - 10p a litre. I used to work for Esso, and tried to avoid using them all the time. Did I get an empolyee discount? Did I f**k.
