Re: without belittling the protest
which is about half the price of the actual fuel if I'm not mistaken
Fuel duty plus VAT in the UK equals approximately three times the cost of the actual fuel.
I think I'm right in saying Norway has some of the cheapest fuel in Europe. As of right now Diesel here is about 10p cheaper per litre than my old home town, outside Portsmouth. Add in the difference in salaries and it becomes cheaper still.
