The price per litre has been going South for the last 2 weeks. The gas station opening price for 25th March 2020 will be close to 0.41p / litre Pounds Sterling. Travel restrictions are in place, there has been little snow fall in 24 hours and the snowmobile trails have been closed. So I can't save any money by driving around. There is no snow to clear, so the tractor is idle and Snowmobiling is banned. This means I can now save 0 cents per litre.

Down to about 1.02 per litre in the uk, but likewise, no benefit to most who are grounded

Yes really Peter: 1.02 per litre

It was over 1.30 per litre previously

Just under $1/litre for ULP in Western Australia, but like everywhere else, we're not allowed to joyride. Essential journeys only, like getting food and trying to get bum fodder.

Hi
Living in a part of town with just pavements in front of old terraced houses, I or the other person, would have to step into the road to allow 6ft clearance if meeting someone coming the other way.
So I am quite happy to argue for use of the car to get to a more rural/deserted area for my "daily" fresh air exercise.

Or take a bike ride. With respect, I think your argument on the grounds of passing someone on the street is argument for the sake of it. The problems are large enough without adding hypothetical.
