I`m sure last time I was in UK it was the other way round
I think you will find the only other countries in the EU where diesel costs more than petrol are Latvia and Switzerland - but it is still 20- 30 p litre cheaper than in the UK.

What about Lead-Replacement Petrol (LRP) ?????
4 Star leaded petrol cost more than unleaded due to the extra tax levy for the lead content. LRP still costs more then unleaded, even though there is no lead in it to justify the extra tax.

All together now ........ R I P O F F !!!!!!!
