Was only a matter of time....

Gas said to have taken another 10% hike with Russia invading Ukraine and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

The main EU gas supplies come from Russia AFAIK and sure ffs, he will cut us off.

Time to ramp up production in the Corrib gas fields and turn us into the next UAE. The government will end buying Oldham and taking them to the Europa League or something.

as I type uk gas futures are now up 34% (who supply most of our gas). If this isn't a wake up call for Western Europe nothing will. Very little of Irelands gas comes from Russia nevertheless we are at the very end of the gas pipeline. The government needs to get its act together and accelerate the rollout of renewables.

They've recently made a 30 year deal with China to supply gas via their Siberian pipeline

Was out and about Sunday, within about 10k of my house I saw prices from 1.85 to 2.05 for petrol. Looked like the petrol stations couldnt agree on it quick enough

The state take a euro a litre and sure the hikes will increase next week and then we are back to square one.

Not enough of a reduction and pressure will be back on.

Put 93e into the tank yesterday, got distracted by my phone and the it just clicked!

The last time I filled the tank to the brim, I drove it home and it got robbed that night! LOL
It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.

The supposed dangers associated have proven to be unfounded as far as I know.

I saw that episode of Mythbusters also Embarrassed

Though I had the phone out while at the pump recently and the lad in the shop got on the Tannoy to ask me to put it away so it's still a thing I guess

Was there  a mention of putting a cap on the price as of midnight tonight also?
 
I normally get a text with my fuel card prices for the week on a Friday, I've got a text everyday this week so far with increases. It's mad.

If there are increases with wheat/barley prices then they would likely be passed on, however, it doesn't appear that Europe are really getting their grains from there. 

I see irish farmers here are being asked to grow more grain to address shortages
