Petrol

Post by Terry Phillips » Thu Sep 13, 2018 3:54 pm

I was planning a road trip until I just saw the price of fuel going up to about R17 a lt.So the cost of living is going to be out of reach for most people now.Its not like you have a bus service like the old days where you could go just about any where on a bus now you must walk.

Agreed Terry.

Big part of my business is driving around seeing clients and I am telling you it is getting ridiculous.

It is getting out of hand this has a major effect on my bottom line.

Love taking the odd road trip or exploring off the beaten track. Now i look for places closer to home. Lots of little towns in SA may loose out due to fewer people visiting during festive periods.

I get the cost Terry, Been there and witnessed it my self.

Not sure what Merlin, was trying to say with the ..."No, it's not."

Not sure if its sarcasm or he trying to say something else.
