[Homework]2010-04-11 燃油费养路费见涨,驾车者顾虑增多

April fool's day is no joke for the motorists this year. A double-whammy of rising petrol prices and increased road taxes is hitting drivers hard. Band-M cars which emit the most CO2 will cost an extra 500 pounds to drive out of the show room from today. For the browsering customers the costs are the major consideration.
If a new budget coming through, they have actually short of belongs and I'm not happy with that at the moment. So I'm having  a second thought going for a car, which one do I go for and from the work out, in a sense what to do.
The cost of running a car is approaching a record high too, with the price of petrol accelerating up with since the New Year. From January 2009 the average price per litre has risen steadily from 86.2 pence, driven by the weak pound against the dollar and rising wholesale fuel prices. On April the 1st last year, the prices led adjust the government increased fuel duty by 1.84 pence per litre. On September the 1st, another 2 pence per litre was added in duty. In January this year VAT went back up to 17.5%. And despite the average price rising 5 pence in the recent weeks, the chancellor will put up a fuel duty by a further penny for litre, the first instalment to a 3 pence per litre price hike.
And if the prices are bad enough as they are, some experts predicted they could reach an average of a 125 pence per litre by the second half of this year. By the petrol stations insist the tax is hitting them too.I have heard of some of the companies at the moment getting as low as 1 pence a litre margin on their fuel sales.  And that is certainly not the retailer, not even motorist.
There are plenty of techniques that can make the pound in your tank go further. One of the biggest things as well, just how you actually drive. If you drive total aggressively or even you know, just not in a very calm manner and you can actually use a lot more fuel. So, just actually drive calmly, and you know that saving quite a lot. Keeping calm, easier said than done.  Paul Grannen, Sky News.
