MBSGeorge BS: Petrol Prices UK (100* d) RE: BS: Petrol Prices UK 13 Apr 10

People in the government don't think. If you are unemployed you are expected to look for work outside the local area which generally means needing transport of some description. For those with children they have limited time frames to get from A to B and public transport is not regular enough for that so they have a car. It is now becoming a struggle to keep running a car for those who are already living on extremely limited resources.

I watched the petrol price rise from 1.04 to 1.14 in the space of 7 days, it is now 1.19.

I have just had to sell my van to buy a car that is cheaper to run and still struggle to afford the fuel to put in it!! No more visits to weekend festivals for me as I now have nowhere to sleep if I go.

Governments don't understand what it is like to live on sandwiches and beans on toast because it's all I can afford most of the time.
