Fuel has just jumped to $2.10/ltr here. Ouch. I may have to pull a couple of spark plugs in the ole girl.
Car that is, just to be clear and ensure I get a meal tonight.

The dollar did drop more and has only come back up close to 0.69 in the last couple of days...... against the US, the NZD got slaughtered by the English pound overnite. That's inter bank rates, which are wholesale rates sort of thing. We were in the low 0.67's a few days ago but the markets are starting to pump up the NZD again as they see the Governments programs going in and and being talked about will drive inflation up.

 

Plus the price of WTI crude has gone up close on 10% in the last 10 days.

 

Add those together and reasonable sized increases are not any surprise.

 

I saw $1.18 point something, for diesel this morning at the local.

Don't worry comrades, we have a policy to address this (hang on while I dig around.......), ah there it is.  I think we will have to fix the dollar, that capitalism stuff is well, stuffed.  Actually I have an even better policy that will support our cheap light rail (well cheap to us, we are going to make you pay for it).  Here it is, I think I will call it carless days, I'm told it worked wonders in the past.

Now now comrades. Jacinderella, H1 & H2 know whats best for everyone. If you would all just stop the criticism and let them get on with levelling everyone , we can all join in the joyous bounty of the other 97% while they join the 3% at the trough.

I would have thought that anyone that can afford to buy and boat, and run and maintain a boat, had no real reason to grizzle about petty going up 10 or 20c/litre....

Well, your thought is obviously flawed then.

Diesel is $1.44 here today.
The Oil companies say the the reason us falling dollar and a rise in the cost of production squeezing margins.
