    Looking at the implosion of commodity demand, I think we will see oil under $40 a barrel for a while which is good news on the fuel price front but very bad news indeed for the global economy

    We are off to Croatia this weekend via Belgium, Germany, Austria, etc.
    Does anyone know of a good place to fill up with fuel on the Calais to Bruges, Ghent road ? Service stations charge too much.

    Are you asking for somewhere to fill up other than a fuel service station?

    Have a look at http://www.prix-carburants.gouv.fr/ . Click on the green 'Gazole' (if you want diesel?) box on the left of the page and then on the Department you want (probably 62 or 59 in your case). This will give you the current prices at the filling stations in that Department and a location map.
    Looks like the LeClerk at Dunkirk is € 1.054/litre at the moment.

    The most it can cost in Belgium today is €1:148 per lt even on the motorway service areas.
    Thats the legal maximum

    Nearest Leclerc are 1.089 and 1.098 - driving to Belgium to fill up seems a case of penny wise, pound foolish (for me anyway)

    Road tax / V.E.D. no longer pays for roads upkeep in the U.K. - the revenue is added to the general tax income pot & most of it seems to be sent to the corrupt E.U. :eek:
