The cost of protecting the West's Middle East oil supplies is about a dollar a gallon, a UK Government minister says.
Peter Hain, the Europe Minister, said this cost should be reflected in transport and other domestic policies.

"We have a way of life, a set of consumption patterns, that are going to have to change - all of us.

"We have to recognise that without a major shift in the whole way we organise ourselves, our pattern of life is simply not sustainable."

Far too sensible for a UK Govt minister... I can see him getting reshuffled soon.

FoE are gonna have a field day ;)
