Scots pay more to fuel their cars and businesses
Although Scotland produces a great deal of oil, only a smaller percentage
of this total is easily refined into petrol and diesel for cars and lorries.
However, the Scots pay the highest fuel prices in Europe, more than London,
more than oil free Euro states.
Just another way that London is bleeding the Scots dry.
The average price of four-star (92 grade)is 72.9p a litre in Scotland, compared with 69.5p across the
Border in jolly old England.
