Petrol Prices

Today on the radio there was talk about prices reaching $1.50 a litre ( i guess if Sadam really is as insane as people say, and he probably is), are we all going to boycott buying petrol when it hits a certain price?

I'll have no bloody choice if motor spirit gets that high. Buggered if I am gonna drive around in a 5.7L car with petrol that damned expensive.

Me thinks the VT is gonna be up for some extended R&R soon! On blocks in my garage!

Had to laugh at work today.. We were talking about the price of petrol & I thought to myself.. "Jeebus.. & I just bought an XR8!"

Is all good.. If that's the price it gets to, that's the price I'll have to pay.. Shit happens!

Well I plan on getting the last of the V8's :)

It's funny though, none of our crude oil actually comes from Iraq.
