WTF of the day: Petrol prices to rise even more
Despite a price rise of 6p in the last few weeks, the pathetic pound will force petrol prices up by a further 3p a litre, the AA said today.
With the average price of petrol in the UK at a carburettor bustin’ 138.32p a litre, this price rise looks set to making driving a car more expensive than wallowing in a bath of blood diamonds with Kim Kardashian.
The AA is urging George Osborne to ditch the rise in petrol duty planned for September from next month’s Budget (which is like asking Scrooge for a Wonga loan.)
AA president Edmund King said: ‘This latest surge in fuel prices and its impact on spending indicates that UK drivers and families can’t take any more.
We’re no longer talking of the motorist as a cash cow for tax and speculator greed, but a horse slowly but surely being flogged to death.’
DON’T MENTION HORSES.
Actually, that’s it! Sell the car and get a horse. They’re cheaper and when it’s dead: burgers.
