According to a german spogagrapha @ blog.co.uk motorists fuel price hikes are causing ‘shop local’ strategies among regular shoppers. Not driving to another town or using the car at all, but actually avoiding use altogether.
In the UK and many european cities they can of course, whilst in kiwi country that local would be a luxury few – maybe apartment dwellers – could/would use.
All in all the impression is one of why the Saudi Oil Minister’s voice rings truest the real market situation. Which says nothing at all for the counterfactuals.. eh man!
