I am sick to my teeth of these prices, I finally relented and told hubby he could get a motorbike to get in and out of work on (works in Swords), he is chuffed to say the least. It will save us a heap of money on petrol, we are putting about 70 euro a week into the one car, whereas last year it was only about 45 euro on a busy week. This government is tax-happy, something needs to be done about it! Our airfares are going up, our food prices are rising, this affects every aspect of life! I just feel bad for the people that live in remote areas that can’t avail of public transport and can’t afford to put petrol in their cars anymore. Shameful.
