Cheaper Petrol and Diesel.



There aren't that many advantages to living in the adjunct to the United Kingdom that is termed Northern Ireland but the quantative easing that is now occurring in the euro zone has some fiscal benefits for the Northern Irish driver, provided that he or she, (and all variations in between), is within a half hours drive of the Republic of Ireland.


I dodged across the border on Friday and filled the almost empty tank of the horseless carriage. The necessary diesel fuel cost me 91p per litre so a reasonable and welcome saving. An attendant at the pump was a pleasing facility. It is a pity however that one has to purchase one's fuel in these foreign litres rather than in comfortable galleons. Hopefully we will have the opportunity of reversing Wilson's ex post facto referendum of 1975.
