    Who knows, the DWP might suggest cycling everywhere even for people with no limbs or blind ... Really bad. Problem is Britain is an island so there is no other but buying what is out there. No options of going to a neighbouring country. I have been told petrol cost 10 pence a litre in Dubai .

    We should have at least 30 years of oil reserves (http://www.imeche.org/knowledge/them...ll-oil-run-out).

    The reason Venezuela can sell oil products so cheaply is that they have approx 380 years of oil remaining! (quite interesting reading http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil_reserves)
