Thumbs down Diesel in UK now $10 a gallon

Yes, that's right folks..... we've hit the magic $10/gallon mark over this side of the pond. Ok its for diesel and not gasoline, but gas isn't far behind!!

Filled up the Focus and felt I'd been mugged

When will this situation end?

Is that the highest you've ever paid?

From what I've read, while prices may go up & down, this is just the beginning. Some years from now we may be pining for the days of $10 diesel!

Yes, highest EVER. Aparently by the end of july it'll be $11.50 equivalent (1.50/litre).

Solar EV mild hybrid.... the way forward
