Scots petrol prices ‘to hit £6 a gallon’
The SNP's Angus MacNeil leads the charge -
The SNP last night called on the Westminster Government to honour commitments made before the General Election to tackle rising fuel prices, warning that further rises would damage economic recovery.
What ministers in London forget is that, for people in rural areas, a car is a necessity and not a luxury.
Good point Angus. However the situation is much graver. When fuel prices reach 6% of GDP every country begins to decline economically. What about telling them that Scotland doesn't need to pay more in tax because she is in surplus and higher fuel prices will destroy that surplus and jobs?
Pushing up fuel prices is absolutely the wrong thing to do as we emerge from recession and these increases will actually hinder economic recovery.
We're not emerging from recession Angus. Tell them Scotland doesn't need higher fuel prices or cuts. Tell the people they can pay more and take the cuts or that they can avoid economic collapse by voting for independence.
Come on SNP, tell Scotland the truth.
