Traffic is back to normal now judging by what I see.
Petrol is creeping up 1p at a time instead of them going all out to charge pre covid prices.
You can see what the petrol stations are doing.

Yes and every penny on a litre of petrol means about 35-40p more for me every week.
You can see that when we get back to the old prices (we will :argument: ), it's going to be a lot more expensive to do my job.

So when it goes back up to £1.25 per litre, which it will, you are going to be £10.00 a week worse off :shock:
There will be a big hike soon I reckon so brace yourself.
I am glad I don't use too much petrol.

@Nockya - this is about right as my records show that at it's lowest price recently I was £10.00 better off at every fill up compared to when prices were at their highest.

The prices in the shops remained stable so there's no need to increase petrol, or is there?

That's a fair bit if you fill up.

Greed, simple as that.
