Kyanar:timmmay: I have no problem with the high cost of fuel. It'll force more people onto public transport, which can only be a good thing.
Yup. Now they just have to do something about the high cost of public transport.
Problem is that public transport will only go up with higher fuel costs. It isn't free to run and in all areas in NZ is heavily subsidised by local councils. As costs go up there are two choices - increase rates to pay for this so all people pay more, even if they don't use public transport, or increase costs for end users.
