Double ouch! (and I don't drive). I blogged about this using a photo taken by Leanish of a petrol pump in Barra, further south of here. Those happy days, when petrol and diesel were significantly cheaper. Erm, three weeks ago.
Since then, Am Paipear (the monthly newspaper of the Uists) has been published, with the front page picture showing the latest price rise. The cost of fuel - for cars, fishing boats, and house heating - understandably gets a fair amount of press here.
And since then, there's been another rise.
The prices of diesel and petrol at the pump in North Uist last friday:
That's diesel at 136.2 per litre, and petrol at 123.8 for the same measure.
For US readers, diesel is $10.17 per US gallon and petrol is $9.25. Thus, here for diesel vehicles we've gone through and passed by some way the "Ten dollars per gallon" barrier.
Just how high is this going to go? We're less than 14p off having diesel at £1.50 a litre. Surely not soon?
