    Spot on, i work for BP and sit next to the pricing desks. And 4/5p for the retailer is sometimes more optimistic than people think. I have heard of some garages only making just over 1p a litre profit. The rest is Duty and tax, blame the gov and not the oil companies. As for the profit they make, yes it looks terrible as the prices continue to rise at the pumps, but don't forget that its not only fuel the produce and refine. Lubes is a massive business aswell. Castrol for example..................

    haha the percentage seems insane, but obviously if we didnt pay the tax on fuel the cost would just be tranfered to another tax, perhaps 'pay for mp's seconds homes and nights on the jolly tax', not sure if they'l pass that though lol. Maybe just rename it to 'jollys' tax.

    Diesel is 135.9 near me in the southwest, we pay the highest prices down here because of the transport distance. Cost me £105 to fill my van, that was about 77 litres. It really gets worrying when the price rises alot faster than the amount, really gives me a sweat above the brow.

    I feel for all those who WORK and have to travel say 20/30 miles each way; that's alot out of their wages, and it really doesn't make it worth it if all you're doing is forvever paying the tax man...very little is left to enjoy life with! The Government care's nothing about this area that forces individuals to suffer financially...there should be a 'Fuel Tax Work Incentive' implemented so you could claim back; with proof from Employer Attendance Records, 20+% at the end of the Tax year...just like you do with other essentials for work!

    You want to know where the best place is to fill up, then check out Woodfords garage in Burnham on Crouch Essex. Diesel will set you back a discounted price of 152.9 per litre. 100 litre tank on my Touareg, 100 litre tank on my van and the smaller tank on the A3 would set me back more than my mortgage. Guess what? I travel 10 miles down the road and get it at 128.9.

    If we didn`t pay the high duty on fuel we would only pay it in some other way. The country was borrowing too much to maintain the promises of Labour. Thing are going to get hard to set things right. You wouldn`t just keep adding to your credit card would you ???? but maybe thats the problem too many people do. Spend what you earn not what your going to earn

    in our local Shell garage normal unleaded costs £1.24 and Vpower costs £1.38 thats £7 difference when you buy 50 litres. At the rate i'm using it at the moment thats £700 pounds extra per year for V power.

    We were paying high fuel a long time before labour or anything else.

    The fact is we pay too much tax and then we pay it again with VAT on top.

    They could easily reduce it but they wont!

    I'm all for cutting fuel duty. Question is, how should the money be gathered instead, or what should be cut. How many litres are needed to pay for the Olympics do you think?

    it is getting stupid!! People keep coming up with idea's such as "boycot shell" which is all well and good, but most of the extra ££ is tax!

    Diesel WILL be 150pp by the middle of year!
    Super unleaded WILL be 200pp by the end of this year!

    as has been said, ill keep filling my car up, because i have to, as will most people in this country. All its done is mean im not buying something more thirsty!

    I have to ask you guys, despite all the moaning and groaning, has any of you actually tried to do anything about it? Apart from going to fill up as standard!

    I don't think those petitions actually do anything. Do you know if anyone has drafted a letter to MPs? How many letters to MPs do you think it would take, coupled with open letters to newspapers, before the debate actually opened. How about going and seeing your MP at a surgery. What if everyone at an MPs surgery was there to talk about how petrol prices were affecting them? I think that is the type of organisation it would take before it would get noticed.
