Hi Guys, Petrol prices here in the UK have finally passed the £1 a litre mark, thats $9.00 a gallon to you guys! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif The oil companies here are blaming Hurricane Catrina, i think they are talking out of their arses. Oh and the government tells us that the duty we pay on our petrol is lower then it was 6 years ago, more bull$hit.(dont know if you know but over 70% of the price is tax). This goes to show how a government can treat its electorate with total contempt. We are all saddened with the utter devistation caused by Hurricane Catrina and our best wishes go out to all those who were caught up in it, we were also shocked at how quickly the city fell into lawlessness. From reports given out by our news agencies it seems that apart from wide scale looting, drug dealing and prostitution rings were set quickly and several people had been assaulted and murdered, thankfully you have an armed society and can protect yourselves from these lawless people. If this were to happen in the UK i am sure that squads of police would be sent out to confiscate all legally held firearms in order to stop us using them to protect ourselves our families and our property. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif Ian.
