Consumers across the globe are sighing with relief at the results posted by Shell today.
'I was worried with the price of oil and gas going so high that they wouldn't be able to afford it, then where would we be?' asked one consumer holding a two litre petrol can. 'This? Oh I ran out of fuel in November and have only just earned enough to fill this can up,' he added.
Margaret from Plymouth agrees. 'How these large companies so dependent on fossil fuels keep going is beyond me,' she said today. 'I was about to raid my pension pot and bung them a few quid, poor mares,' she said.
A Shell director agreed it had been a close call - between a Lamborghini or a Ferrari, so he bought both with his bonus instead.
