At the moment, we're paying around £1.45 per litre of petrol.
Remember - this is pounds, not dollars; and this is litres, not gallons.

$9.39 per gallon.
Have you guys from across the Pond recovered? Have you applied the smelling salts? You revived?

That's what we're paying.
I'm not an economist. I'm not a politician. But how does anyone expect an economic recovery to take place when we are being taxed to this extent on one of our most basic commodities?
C'mon you guys in Whitehall: Give us a break.
