Price Cuts It wasn't the government that cut fuel prices? Quite right, but it didn't stop many on here chuntering away about the government being to blame for petrol rises and so I thought it only fair to give them the credit for their falling. Whats that, chunter chunter.......fuel tax.......chunter? When did the Treasury last put up tax? How about this Oil drops to $121. The fuel bods are giggling all the way to the bank and another record year, splitting their sides because dullards are just so intent on blaming the government and letting them get on with ripping us all off.
