We've decided to got to Spain for the month of May for a holiday. On researching the best way to go, I came to the conclusion that we diesel drivers are being conned big time in this country.
Diesel in my area is £0.09/ liter more expensive than unleaded petrol. Why is that? It used to be £0.04 cheaper! Diesel on the Continent can be 25% cheaper than petrol. In fact apart from in Britain, it's only more expensive in Latvia, Switzerland and Sweden.
Diesel cars, I'm told are 40% more efficient and are less polluting than petrol cars. So why the difference? Well, as far as I can see the only reason can be down to the Government and the oil companies in collusion.
How else could you explain it?
