Your government cares about you, you'll be pleased to know, and has taken note of your concerns (but not reduced its tax take etc, mind) regarding the latest fuel price increase, which has seen the liquid gold you pour into your precious metal going to highest price ever. But here's some excellent advice for you, just in case you hadn't thought of it already... our Energy Minister Dipuo Peters suggests it might be a good idea for you to be a bit more economical in terms of your fuel use, given the rocketing price of fuel.
