Petrol prices continue to rise despite the drop in oil prices on the world markets. With government taxes taking over 80% of the price at Irish pumps this constitute a stealth tax on workers and the two government parties running the country are hitting the ordinary working man and woman really hard. Some people are struggling to pay their mortgages and are choosing to fill up their cars with petrol instead of paying their mortgage in order to continue to be able to get to work .There is no money left to consume anything else as these excessive fuel prices are draining the funds from every household in the country thanks again to the Greens and their carbon tax, which by the way has done nothing to curtail emissions and has turned out to be yet another stealth tax on the less well off.
Gangsters the lot of them!
