Fuel Prices - Warning

For those of you booked to arrive in the next matter of weeks, just be aware that fuel prices have shot up dramatically overnight, rising over 4c a litre for both Petrol/Gas and Diesel.

Our local Great Gas that was selling at 142.9 c/litre on Friday was selling at 147.5 cent a litre today. We bought diesel today in Emo on the Dublin Road at 139.9 a litre (one of the cheaper garages in town).

Diesel Prices in the UK appear to be the same as those in Ireland except they are in sterling i.e. Diesel costs £1.399 a litre.

Here's hoping that the middle-east issue will resolve itself positively for both those seeking democracy and those using fuel.

Yes let's hope so! Our Ireland budget is going to take a hit if these gas prices continue to skyrocket!

Yes the fuel companies are cashing in and pre-empting events in the Middle East by racking up their prices. This site might help ease the pain a little.

It cost us €60 to fill the tank yesterday. My husband was horrified!

News that fuel prices are expected to take a massive hike shortly. Reports yesterday from the UK is that petrol will reach £2 per litre.
