Be thankful they don't take it all

Following on from Dick Puddlecote, making a point I fully concur with, with regard to Osborne's 'generosity' towards us poor serfs, by kindly putting off an increase in fuel duty, thereby 'saving' the average family £144 a year, and presuming my dear readers will know exactly what view I'd take on such a notion, I thought I'd satisfy my curiosity towards what the actual price of petrol is.

Thus, courtesy of the Institute of Fiscal Studies, and using data from DECC, the facts are as above. The price is in pence per litre, and it's not too difficult to work out what a thieving bunch of greedy bastards the government is made up of.

Take it away, George.

Yep, fundamentally when you think about it, the government had decided that the problem with the petrol price is that it's just too low and needs to be increased.
