AA see increase in motorists running out of petrol

1:54PM Thursday July 10, 2008


Fuel prices




The AA has noticed more motorists running out of gas, as high petrol prices put pressure on wallets.
Callouts by AA members who had run out of petrol while driving was up 3.3 per cent for the year to date, AA spokesman Simon Lambourne said.
Compared to 2007 figures the number of callouts was up every month this year, except January.
The highest increase was a 21 per cent rise in May.
Mr Lambourne said the trend of increased callouts was "of concern".
Running out of petrol was inconvenient for motorists, raised safety issues and in older cars the sediment on the bottom of the petrol tank could get into the engine, causing bigger problems.
"Motorists are hurting in the wallet, they are delaying filling up, but it's self-defeating. If you misjudge it, it's not worth it."
Fuel gauges should be used only as a guide, he said.
The Automobile Association will take petrol to members who run out. The service is free, but members have to pay for the petrol.

Mr Lambourne said the AA had no intention of dropping, or charging for, this service, but wanted motorists to be aware of the problems surrounding running out.
The AA will "keep a close eye" on the situation for the next few months, he said.
The Wairarapa had the biggest increase, of 40 per cent, from 10 to 14 callouts.
Other regions with increased callouts were Auckland up 3.2 per cent, Waikato 30.1 per cent, Wellington 18.5 per cent and Canterbury 23 per cent.
All other regions recorded a decrease.
Motorists in city areas were more likely to run out of petrol than those in rural areas because of increased difficulties of getting help in isolated areas.

Coffee Shop Talk - How to own/run a pizza shop/business?
From: High Way Of Life (ahbengsomg) 01:28
To: ALL 1 of 4

184120.1

Can any business people comment on owning a pizza shop... I want to get into it and have my own business. I have no experience in business or running my own store, nor do I have experience making pizza but i do have experience in staff management.

Does anyone have any tips/suggestions on the feasability of taking on something like this. This is really a passion, and I would be willing to learn as I go and even take some business classes. I have an Bachelor already (not that this helps) but not really want to be in my current field for the rest of my life. Can I expect success to a career switch by becoming an entrepruener ? Is there a secret to keeping a pizza business alive when there are so many out there? Do you need specialties, or does everyone just love pizza? Is it location, marketing, people skills, product?

What are the upfront costs, approximately? In general, what can I expect if I take on and dedicate my profession in this field?

Thanks for any input...

Nothing to do with my bandwidth. I am using only 5% of my resources. You posted an animated gif whopper (250kb) at mediafire which is slowing down the whole page loading process.
