PETROL

This a very important piece of advice for all board members.

I urge you all to que up at your local filling station for 45 mins ( blocking of the high st ) to top up your vehicle with half a gallon of fuel.

One other piece of advice is take with you petrol cans sandwich boxes washing up bowls and jam jars then fill them up with petrol, diesel or parafin, in fact anything you can get, then store it in your garage just in case.

I think it was a bit of a cynical observation Shane.

Seem that there is panic buying of petrol down south (UK). not sure why though, I'm a bit isolated up here :)

Because that is what every idiot in the UK is currently doing Shane.

And yes illegal storing in such a way here in the UK I believe.


So we can cope with bombings and stay reasonably calm...but fuel....

Dam Im glad I love the MadMax movies.........lmao

I puchased £20 yesterday... didn't want to run out on Wednesday and it so looks so intimedating seeing the petrol pump count up litres and pounds together, 1 litre of diesel = 99.8p where I was.

ouch, that is about $au2.40. I am paying $1.25 a litre, and squeeling like a stuffed pig. Can't imagine paying over $2 a litre. Three years ago, I was paying 63c a litre

I will not join a queue for fuel I'm afraid. I see no point given that the savings are usually offset against the time wasted.

With BP making something like 3 billion dollars profit last financial year, their argument that they are struggling seems a bit hollow.

Was there myself Dave @ 99.7p..........Yesterday.

Then I suddenly realised it wasn't a Fruit Machine..........lol

As for BP Shane.........our Mr Brown will add between 1.5 - 3 Billion £££ to his purse if Oil prices stay like this.

Thanks Steve
It was a cynical observation.

However I have just had a great idea.

A few of us get together and blockade some of the major vinyl suppliers..........Then just wait and we will have people flocking to our premises PANIC BUYING.

Come on who's up for that.

We can colour your diesel any way you like it - for the very first time, you can have a fuel that coordinates with your corporate livery. At present we can supply Orange, Blue, Yellow and Purple Diesel for only a small mark-up on our standard prices.
