Petrol station prank, Lol

Tesco garage petrol sign targeted by pranksters
The unleaded petrol price was changed to 25.9 pence per litre and the letters LOL - which normally stand for Laugh Out Loud - were written below it.

The normal price of unleaded petrol at the station is 125.9 pence per litre.

Ah, if only the sign was true, we can only dream of fuel being that cheap ever again!

Or we could dream of better alternative energy sources. Very Happy

Dream all you want but the Middle East makes fuel into a nightmare. Need alternative energy - if we could only tap the unlimited supply of B.S.!

The alternatives are mostly here already to be fair, it's just the massive long-term changes needed by our society to make it happen have to be accepted by the cowardly 4 year politicians, and the average consumer who's blinded by materialism.

Classic prank joke but most of those signs are now digital in Belgium, which ruins the fun you could have at a petrol station. Smile

Let's hope that they get the Tokamak running in France or the UK, so we can generate energy with kern fusion (Deuteronium and Tritium, both can extracted from sea water). It's an interesting subject actually to read about and it has almost no negative aspects. Very Happy (searching keywords can be Tokamak, kern fusion, jet project, iter project)

Cheers Adri, I've read some of that research before, and yes, new energy tech will definitely get here eventually, for sure. I suspect as soon as the oil cartels/companies realise their time is up they will start to look seriously at taking-over/buying out other options (and stop lobbying against them!), trying instead to 'steal' a dominant position when the fossil fuel market becomes too expensive.
There is a 'trickle' of progress already, taking this as a single example:
In July 2009, ExxonMobil joined with Synthetic Genomics, Inc (SGI) to launch new program to research and develop next-generation biofuelsFuels composed of or produced from biological raw materials, such as plants, photosynthetic organisms, or animal waste. from photosynthetic algae.
Under the program, if research and development milestones are successfully met, ExxonMobil expects to spend more than $600 million

As I said, it's a 'trickle' at the moment but I can certainly see it increasing in the next few years as the fossil fuel companies realise they will eventually have to diversify or go bust.
