Cost Of Living
« on: July 03, 2022, 05:55:36 AM »
I can't afford anything any more and have started growing my own stuff, strawberries, cabbages,  milk, carrots, parsley and tomatoes. Is anyone else finding it tough?

Diesel is shocking. Can hardly see the needle moving when you put £50 in. Madness.

How do people do it if they're doing big miles every week?

But why is the cost of diesel still increasing, dollar against the pound? War in Ukraine on going but u think cost stabilise as its on for the long term. Saudi, UAE making a killing here along with the govt with massive tax duty on diesel.

Inflationary circle. Oil jumps because of a supply issue. Because oil is the foundation of our economy the whole economy starts inflating. Oil continues to inflate because other costs are increasing (wages, equipment, travel, rents, interest on borrowing). It continues until the crash.

That's fierce Redhand88.

Some cost in that, never mind tipping about for yourself.

I can get 60mpg in the car which helps a bit, but it's still costing £300 a month to keep on the road.

Has the price of a barrel not dropped lately?

Yeah but good luck waiting on them passing that on, RAC said the other day it should be 5/6p cheaper than it is. Quick to go up, slow to come down

Why are others countries more protest orientated than us, such as France. Its not like we aren't a nation of complainers. Surely at some point people need to rally against the government to significantly reduce the price of fuel, and not just by 5 or 10p.

France has traditionally been big on national protests
