The Price Of a Litre of Petrol

Probably one of those questions politicians fear is the ‘price of a pint’ question, and today’s PMQ’s saw Mark Lancaster ask Gordon Brown the price of a litre of petrol in his constituency. The answer, after a (timely?) nudge from the Speaker to let him sit don and ask Alistair Darling?

“A barrel of oil is $110… oh and petrol’s around £1.10 I think.”

Growing up in Cowdenbeath -which is part of Brown’s constituency – I never recall seeing any outlets that would let us buy a barrel of oil. Incidentlay a quick call home has it at £1.06. Or as my Dad puts it, almost a fiver a gallon. I wonder why Brown didn’t furnish us with that useless bit of trivia instead?
