Wasn't I reading elsewhere that fuel prices were actually coming down, with folks posting about how it was happening in their areas, and some even saying it had dropped below £1:30 a litre?

Not happened here.... :( Even Tesco is still £1:41.9

Unleaded was offered at £131.9 up the road from me, popped in to take advantage, as you do..

Weasel is £1.38 at local Sainsburys today. Cost me £80 to fill up :( ... and that's with 15p per litre discount.

As for the cancellation, being in the public sector I'll be paying for it through the nose elsewhere regardless.

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?
