The Cost of Fuel
The price of fuel continues to rise. There were protests by truckers today, they were requesting a rebate of 25p per litre of fuel. If their demands are not met, they threaten to blockade the refineries. I remember the chaos the last time the refineries were blockaded.
In truth, whilst the cost of fuel is outrageously high, we are too dependent on a finite resource. We should be preparing for life without oil, instead of bickering over the price of the little that is left. Once it's gone, it's gone.
