Excuse me while I have a rant!
It's on the news about lay off's in the oil industry due to falling oil prices. Ok - I admit I am not watching the barrel price of crude. Amid all of this, petrol prices are creeping up again. The best price I have ever found in the current "price fall" was £1.02p and that was quite some weeks ago. The best I could do yesterday was £109.7p at Asda. Someone must be raking it in. We all know most of the price of petrol goes in taxes to the government. I wonder if it's them or someone else in the chain that is profiteering? I'm in Aberdeen for goodness sake! Wouldn't you think I should be doing better than most of the rest of the country for petrol? Certainly nothing else is cheaper here! What's it like in the rest of the country?
Rant over. :evil:

I live in Bath and work out of Bristol. 12 miles or so away. Petrol/Diesel can be as much as 4 or 5p cheaper if I buy it in Bristol.
Scandalous!

Living in a village with just one petrol station its always expensive there.
So I try to fill up when I go to my daughters 19 miles away at Sainsburys its always 5 or 6 p a liter cheaper a few days ago I paid 1 04
Or when I go to Formby for the Charity I go to Tesco and use my points . Every little helps..
Tesco always undercuts the cheapest petrol station in the area so it depends what competition there is in the town. :roll: Ann

Just been to Costco and they now have a petrol station that is 6pence a litre cheaper than any other in Liverpool
But you must have a Costco card and pay with a card
