Quite shocking really!
I couldn’t actually believe that i paid £20 to fill my bike up the other day! :w00t: Total rip off!!
When I got my first car, I remember being incesnsed that petrol went to 41p / litre…wish it was back there now!
When i started driving the price of a gallon of petrol was nearly as much as a litre is now :w00t:
Did they have petrol back then?
(If I don’t someone else will !!!)
Did they have combustion engines back then or was he driving around with a bucket of petrol on the back of his bicycle?
It was about 40p per litre when I got my first car!.. :crazy:
Oh guys back in a day in my (eastern europe) country I would get a bucket of petrol for free every other day from my friend working in a … factory. He would fill my tank and just dump the remaining stuff on a ground as it was to uncool to carry it back 10 yards. Silly days…
petrol prices in South Africa are where they were here 12 years ago :w00t:
I am very old, I remember coming back from a holiday and seeing it had gone to £1 per gallon, I was shocked!
this is really making my eyes water, costing me nearly 300 quid a mth in fuel at moment…
