A pint of lager is 30% up on price in UK

Post by GD on Thu 01 Sep 2011, 6:06 pm

ISLANDERS are paying an average of 30p more for a pint of lager than drinkers in the UK, a major new price comparison has revealed.

However, cigarettes and petrol are still cheaper here than in England.

The data released by the States Statistics Unit also showed that Island shoppers pay about a third more for fresh fruit and vegetables and a quarter more for meat than shoppers in the UK.

And the report has again raised questions about the prices Islanders pay for petrol, alcohol and cigarettes, showing that if taxes are removed from the equation, Islanders are paying a premium of up to 70p a pint for beer and 15p a litre for fuel.

And Guernsey is not any better...
