N is for... (part 2)

Those few of you in my readers' circle may recall that milady Paularubia gave me the task of writing about things beginning with N. Ages ago, that was, but I here I go with part 2.

N is for... 99.9.  That was the price of a litre of petrol when I drove past the petrol station yesterday.

Today, the price just said 01.9.  What's happened there? I wondered, before realising that the sign was designed before anyone thought of the petrol price requiring four digits.

They said there would be rioting in the streets if petrol went over a pound a litre. But it all seems quiet, apart from the fireworks.
