Dreaming Of A Tough Life In California While Facing The Reality That Is The UK!
Spare a thought for those living in the US state of California who are complaining that a gallon of fuel for their vehicles has risen to the ridiculous price of three dollars (£1.79 in our currency).
While I was shelling out my £1.22 per litre (£5.44 per gallon) in my local Asda this morning, I was wondering how they get to suffer such hardship, while enduring such a great climate too.
I guess the main difference is they do not have a greedy government, who not only place a high percentage of tax on the fuel but also impose a tax on top of the tax!
As for the sunshine.....well I guess we don’t have enough to impose a tax on that quite yet!
If you are reading this Mr Osborne.......forget it!!
