Oil hits the headlines - a good news story

Press release March 22, 2016

Part narrative non-fiction, all inspiring - The VFUU Price of Oil launched yesterday


DERBY, UNITED KINGDOM - 21 March 2016. You know oil is important, you are likely to want to use less (most of us do). You have no idea where to start or even if you can make a difference.

Oh and you're tired of people preaching.

Do you want a factual, non-judgemental explanation of how we use oil? Do you want this information to keep you fascinated, instead of boring you into a deep slumber or making your head spin? Would you like to see what other people are doing to reduce their use of the sticky stuff?

The Volatile Fickle Unpredictable Undependable Price of Oil - VFUU for short - will take you on a journey through time and technology to show how we depend on oil and why we would benefit from using less.

The VFUU Price of Oil charts the story of oil, from the very start, through its transformation of every aspect of our lives, and concludes with a compelling narrative of why we now need to move beyond oil once and for all. I was engaged, entertained and enlightened by this unique approach to the subject.”
