In the news today unleaded petrol hit an average £1 a litre, here in Campbeltown its £1.05.9 for petrol and £1.10.9 for diesel, absolultely ****ing ridiculous. Being at the end of the only main road to and from Glasgow (which is 133 miles, and same distance to the nearest motorway), our nearest petrol station is 32 miles away, and then roughly every 15/20 miles after (no cheap tescos petrol pumps till Glasgow neither...!!) Question is why should people in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland have to pay about the dearest petrol in the country when we NEED our vehicles? With the rubbish state of the roads and verges, landslides and potholes as deep as the Grand canyon and minimal public transport, its really p***ing me off how we have to pay so much, with the government getting so much on fuel and road tax, but puts so little back onto the maintance of the roads in return!! With the recent landslide halfway to Glasgow on the A83, (same place as 2/3 years ago!) the road is seemingly shut to Glasgow for approx 1 month, with diversion times through the back roads putting up to an hour extra onto the standard 3hr journey time, (thats an 8hr round trip to Glasgow!!!) Go on, have look at the AA road map for the journey from Campbeltown to Glasgow and you'll see how out in the sticks we are!! I feel sorry for our conductor who travels that distance for our practices!! When YABB were over in America and Canada in the summer, our hosts were complaining at their petrol costs, I think they were roughly paying for a gallon for what we paid for a litre.... 12yrs ago when I started driving it was 49p in Campbeltown for unleaded.... Anyway that's my rant for today So what's the price of petrol and diesel nearest to you and what's your opinion on the great british fuel rip off ?
