Talk about highway robbery.
The price of petrol/gas shot up from €1.17/litre on Monday (April 20) to €1.26 today (April 23).
Given that €0.80 of that are fixed taxes, price variability can only happen in the area above that treshhold.
So even if it LOOKS as if petrol's only gone up by 7.7% at the pump, it actually reflects an increase of 24% somewhere along the line.
The price of Brent Crude skyrocketed? Nooo, actually dropped by 6%.
€:$ exchange rate gone haywire?
Nooo, only about 2% upward movement in the last week.
Must mean we're being scammed by the oil multis
Not that I'm for the collective ownership and administration of the means of production and control of the distribution of goods - that would be socialism -, but someone has to get these bastards under control....
