Farmers and lorry drivers are set to take part in protests across the UK against the rising cost of fuel.

The day of action comes after fuel prices on garage forecourts rose above the £1 per litre mark in recent weeks.

A Road Haulage Association convoy of about 30 vehicles is also due to create a rolling blockade on major roads in Scotland from 1000 GMT on Saturday.

The government has warned unlawful blockades should not be tolerated.

Police plan to monitor the situation.

Last time they did that was a right nightmare, still over a £ a litre is a complete p**s take

That happened on the A59 from York every time the gypsies did their westward move. Or eastward, come to think of it.

These protests never seem to have any effect, maybe we should all emigrate.

~3.78 litre = 1 US gallon
(£1/litre * 3.78 litres) * 2.0174 = ~$7.63/gallon in US Dollars

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
