    Would this be the same analysts that forecast our such good financial climate so far, lol, seeing is believing, its amazing everyone starts buying nice new petrol cars at beginning of the boom number years ago, petrol goes up, then we switch to new diesel cars diesel goes up, now urrrm is this fixed or what!!!

    Ok I forecast it being nowhere near 74p.

    I agree that it will probably never get to 74p again, but as said, heres for wishful thinking, it would be good if it even dropped to the early 90p range or late 80s, any reduction is a good one after all hey...and the amount of petrol i use, a little makes a big difference....lets wait and see hey :)

    I cant see it dropping to less than a pound a litre as the goverment is making far too much tax from it - and of course completly wasting the extra cash on the latest daft idea - all IMHO

    Yeah heard but not actually seen, lol, doubt ever will in our lifetime, when fossil fuels are abandoned sometime in the future for more green cars with 20,000 duracell bunny batteries they will give you free petrol, buy 100 batteries get 1 litre of petrol free, sound familiar, lol

    Back in 1994, when I'd just passed my test and started driving round in my Mk3 Escort 1.3GL, I always remember that a tenner would return 14.73 litres. Don't know how I remember that, but I do.

    Just worked out that was when four star was 67.9p a litre...

    Amazes me how some people think £1.05 is cheap!!!! I mean were not talking long ago there were some strikes, and we all remember them. yet no-ones bothered this time round. I recall Richard Hammond on Top Gear tell us about a guy who was getting as many people to sign up to his website so to see about getting a "petrol card" for one of the big retailers to provide cheap fuel. He needed 500,000 people to sign up. he had more than that but had no sucess at all, now his emails have all but dried up bar the odd few telling us about discounts on tom toms:keule:........... And by the way do i hold the record.... I remember 4 star at 52p!!!

    This reminds me of the days when I was driving a Mk3 Golf 1.4CL, I would only fill it up with a tenner knowing I could do around 100miles before needing a refill... students huh. :)
