The good news: I travel to work by train. The bad news: I travel to Gordon’s Bay by car.

If any of you are lost, then you should be aware that of Wednesday this week, the price of all grades of petrol is going up by a massive 43 cents a litre.

This increase has been on the cards for a while now, thanks to all market fears over supply etc., so it is not like we didn’t know that it was coming, but still, 43 cents per litre extra is a lot to cough up at a visit to the pumps.

I wonder if bicycle sales have been on the increase lately and if SUV owners are kicking themselves yet?
