In view of the rising fuel prices, how long does it take for the crude oil to be taken from the well, refined & delivered to the forecourt. Now I'm not one to point the finger at anyone for profiteering, but come on chaps. Does it really warrant 10p a gallon rises all round straight away? I won't even mention domestic heating oil.

Think the oil/petrol companies will say that the price has been rising for some time and that they've held off for as long as they can but can't continue doing this - oooohhh my heart bleeds for them !

I've heard it's ball eing made worse by speculation -people buying up forward supplies of oil to avoid price risies and creating excess demand which itself raises the price further. Does that make sense ?

Don't worry folks.

My nextdoor neighbour has enough oil on his driveway to keep the western-world supplied for 20 years.

The last I heard on the radio, was that the 'war' was going to cost about 2 billion. Money has to come from somewhere. 'Hello Nice Mister Motorist'.

You know how it goes, they can't live with us, but can't live without us (our taxes that is..).
