    No way you were paying £0.30/litre a year ago, not on the water side at least.

    Still, 3.5 times increase is terrible. but then, even if we still had red at rebated prices we would be paying £1 a litre by the end of this year - the cost of oil is the cost of oil after all.

    In 1958 petrol was the equivalent of 5 p /litre.A Police Constables salary was £510/year.

    In todays terms that equates to qabout £2.50/ litre .Hard to believe that petrol is only half the cost now as then. Makes it seem a bargain really [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Red diesel decision is in: full rate at pump from November
    The decision is this: red diesel is staying red, but boaters will have to pay the top rate of duty (54.68 pence per litre instead of 7.69ppl) at the pump from 1 November this year.
