改为HW了,谢谢!

April Fools'day is no joke for the motorists this year. A double-whammy of rising petrol prices and increased road taxes / 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 browsing / customers, the costs are their major consideration.
   With the new
budget coming through, they have actually shot a blow, and I'm not happy with that, so I am having the second thought,do I realy afford a car? which one am I going for, and from there work out, innocence what to do.
   The cost of running a car is approaching a record high too. With the price of petrol accelerating upward since the new year. From January 2009, the average price per liter has risen steadily from 86.2 pence,driven by / weak pound against the dollar and rising / wholesale fuel prices. On April the first last year,the price led the government increase / fuel duty by 1.84 pence per liter. On September the first, another two pence per liter was added on / duty.In January this year VAT went break up to 17.5 percent.
   And despite the average price rising 5 pence in / recent weeks, the Chancellor would put up fuel duty by a futher penny per liter, the first installment to a three pence per liter price hike.
   And if the price are bad enough as they are, some experts predict they could reach an average of 125 pence per liter by the second half of this year.
But the petrol stations insist the tax is hitting them too.
   I've heard that some companies at the moment getting as low as 1 pence a litre's margin on their fuel sales,and that is certainly not the retailors * the motorists.
   There are plenty of tactics those to make your pound in your petrol tank go further.One of the biggest things as well is just how you actually drive,if you drive at all aggressively, or even, you know just not in a very calm manner,you can actually use a lot more fuel. So just actually drive calmly,and you know that saves your quiet a lot
   Keeping calm,easier said than done.
