    Unhappy Petrol Price

    I have noticed over the past few weeks that hardly any of the big engined vehicles are comming to Atlantis. The V8 the V6 engined vehicles are costing more to run now, . Yes we did have Hummers and Cruisers last week end but what about all the other times. The car park used to be full of vehicles either airing up or down but now its just me and the guard .I am now wondering if some traded their cars for sandboards?

    Well, I'm thinking that I'm going to start cycling to work!! When it costs more than R1000 a month just to get to work and back you gotta rethink priorities...

    Ian, I promise, when the studies are over I'll come keep you and the guard company!

    Laat dink my aan die storie van die twee ouens wat sit en gesels. Die een se toe as vleis se prys weer opgaan sal hy ophou om vleis te eet! Die ander ou vra toe wat hy gaan doen as brandewyn se prys opgaan? Die snaar antwoord toe: " Dan sal ek ook maar ophou vleis eet!!!"

    As Herman says.

    If you are addicted, it is a problem. If fuel was R20 a liter, it would still be a bargain.

    I'm hoping to go Saturday, but apparently it will be pretty windy. Anyway, I'm sure we'll find a spot out of the wind when we want to have a breather.

    Will the permit office in Wale St be open tomorrow afternoon as well or do they work half-day on Fridays?

    yes our petrol is getting expensive, my cousin lives in Portugal
    and he sent me a whole bunch of stuff on a mail and one of them is the price of petrol.

    have a seat 1st



















    the equivalent of R17/liter
    was shocked and felt better after that about our price of fuel.

    Yes but what they forget to tell you is that the per capita income in developed/first world countries is MUCH higher than in SA with its lower petrol price.
    I can remember during my 50cc motorbike school years a friends father warned, you guys must slow down because one of these days petrol is going to cost you 50cents a litre and then you cant ride all day just for fun.
    And true as bob about two years later I filled my 850 Mini from zilch to full and paid R12.50 for the 25 litres.
