Bit of a joke that nearly 66% of the price of a litre of petrol/diesel is made up from various taxes, therefore the power to help people is within the governments hands.

The bigger joke is that like some people said this is not the impact of any crisis yet - this is the impact of demand and profiteering. The impact of any crisis is yet to be felt.

Cant understand why petrol stations who are putting the aem in don't have complete community boycott.

If the cost is up significantly you can reduce the percentage tax and not lift any less money...

20c off petrol and 15c off diesel to end of August.
Anyone know why diesel and petrol ended up at the same price per litre the weekend when the diesel has been 8 to 10c cheaper for years?

Apparently more diesel comes from Russia although there were definitely those who put the price up knowing the tax cut was coming!

Will those greedy retailers not keep the price as it was and just pocket the cut in tax into their own pockets?

Sad to see an Irish born person like "gmac" descending to a state of utter stupidity.
