Default Driving in Britain is expensive!

Checking the new for the day I found this reading More expensive to drive in Britain - Secured Loan UK News

Just wondering how much driving cost all over the world

Yep - Britain is expensive for a lot of things, not just driving.

I've always found public transport to be ideal. I'm lucky that I live quite close to a train station, but I don't think I could go out and buy a car just yet.

That's why we all should move to china. Life will be a lot easier there. Nah only joking. Tommorow I will be old enough to start driving, so I guess this is going to put a hole in someones pocket.

I couldn't live without my car, but it is getting expensive! I remember the days when I'd fill up my tank and the 'Litres' counter would be higher than the 'Pounds' counter. No such luck these days!

I've always found public transport to be expensive and inconvenient. I'm thinking of buses though not trains. I'm lucky in that I can walk to work so I don't have to spend too much on petrol.

The reason I don't have a car yet is because it is so expensive

I guess I wouldn't have to worrie about the problem. I would only need one for work. However I work online so that's okay for me. Besides I am only seventeen. Won't need one yet anyways.

It's getting more around the world - it's all comparative. It's not great that every other mode of transport is getting more expensive appart from flying, and yet it's flying that we're told not to do!

Fuel has dropped a lot lately. I remember paying 1:22 for a litre of petrol a few months back, now it is 89.9 at my local morrisons!!
