I know I keep on about this but I cannot help myself every time I pass a petrol station. I cannot go by with getting upset and that happens when I am walking by as I do not drive unless it is absolutely necessary and even then I will drive only as a last resort. As I have predicted petrol prices are continuing to climb and I believe we will be seeing prices up around the 1.80 – 1.85 Euro soon enough!
Why the government haven’t copped on to the fact every euro that goes into the family car is a euro less for the same family in discretionary spending .Proof of this is plane to see in the last CSO retail figures published, which continues to nosedive!
I have now decided to expand this action to other non essential purchases as I am trying to avoid paying into the coffers of the current corrupt puppet government. I view the prices of petrol as a stealth tax and prices here in Ireland for basic items are way above the average elsewhere in Europe.
I hope all other clued in citizens will adopt a similar attitude. Only by being pro active and always ahead of the gangsters in the Dial will we the Irish people someday be able to rid ourselves of the leaches sucking us and the country dry!
Wake up Ireland!
