This story should be deleted. Fuel prices are rising everywhere in the world, and this article is also not written neutrally.-- 14:30, 30 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]

  • I'd tend to agree; Fuel in the UK is already around 1.46EUR and its still hardly newsworthy.
  • Converted to US terms: ~$5.98/gallon, or about twice the average of the US price. --Mrmiscellanious 19:41, 31 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]
  • While this does seem to be an extraordinary price to the average American, many in the US don't think about the subsidies and taxes involved in the two different cases. So I'd have to agree with this story being questionably newsworthy. -- 20:09, 31 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]
