I feel sorry for the Greens when they have conflicting urges.
One the one hand they love high petrol prices as it backs up their claims oil is running out and people need to look at alterative fuel sources.
On the other hand they hate oil companies as they are nasty multi-nationals.
Yesterday the second feeling overcame the first, and Jeanette called for oil companies to absorb the next price spike.
Rather daft if you ask me, because it is through high prices that research into alternative fuel sources becomes economic.
