Have been for weeks now, sometimes the smaller ones are cheaper as their last delivery was so long ago they have not been hit with the increases yet

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get me

I send money abroad and it's costing me more.

I drive a BMW X5 and it's costing me more.

I can take the hit but I'd rather spend the thousands on something more exciting.

My partner sends money to his family in Malaysia every month. The exchange rate has fluctuated a lot over the last three years and has never got back the the pre Brexit stability.

In fact oil prices have fallen over the last month and fell again today and are currently about 5$ off on the month.

But the falling value of the £ against the $ makes it cost more to buy the oil all in all should really mean static pump prices they went down 1p then up by 2 locally. The only reason for this is supermarkets getting their profits where there is little or no competition. The differential retailers do not have petrol stations smaller petrol stations simply cannot compete on a cost basis so they are free to raise the price.

Makes a mockery of the CMA decision when they said it would lower competition on petrol prices when there is little or no actual competition it is all just fake and when one raises the price so do the others.

The £/$ is currently 1.26 almost on the way to parity when without the interference of leaving the EU destabilising our economy it should at least be 1.5 - 2.

Funny how the Leavers and the Not That Deal people have little to say about the drop in the value of GBP resulting from both the original referendum vote and the continuing inability to deliver.
