fuel prices robbery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i tell you why i say this


today when filling my car up in tesco across the road morrisons was cheaper not strange you say...

just think if this price is due to the cost of oil blah blah blah how can they compete with each other to make fuel cheaper they can do this any way especially when tescos now say for june and july spend £50 in store they will take 5p a litre of  petrol bringin it down to 113 a litre so they could do this anyway and still make a profit...

just a thought

Re: fuel prices robbery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Of a £1.15 litre of petrol, it is broken down as follows:

50.35p duty
18p VAT
10p retailer margin/delivery
37p product

Note - 37p, product. This is the ACTUAL PETROL.

It's the government's fault mainly. Not the supermarkets.

And even if the price of oil doubles, the price of petrol will NOT.

Re: fuel prices robbery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lets be fair here. Apart from Gordons little bit, the oil companies have been sha£ting us for years. Its just that of late, they've decided to turn the screw. If we instructors did it, we'd be accused of price fixing.

Re: fuel prices robbery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

no point in moaning about the price of petrol or diesel when everyone could get a horse and be a complete pain in the arris by riding two abreast.thus, forcing other road users to want to hang themselves in the summer heat whilst waiting on the t*ssers to get out the way !!!.

i now hate dorset horse riders.

Maybe you should upgrade to a horse with air conditioning.

Re: fuel prices robbery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Horse is definitely the way forward, they keep the grass down and fertilise it at the same time - talk about eco-friendly.

Why worry - the customer is paying for the fuel anyway.

If you want to save money on your own fuel - use less!

Re: fuel prices robbery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

£72 I put in this morning.

Still get garages closing around here and who wants to spend £50 in Tesco.

Having this discussion with someone else. All the supermarkets with slightly cheaper fuel are on the other side of town, so Id use what I saved in time and fuel getting there and back.

Re: fuel prices robbery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the variation in the cost of diesel and petrol beggers belief.
there is actually places in the south selling diesel for as little as 128.9p and then coming north it shoots back up to 133.9p per litre. these places are the same trading name (texaco), cant see the point of having regional price differences.

morrisons is deffo good as at the moment i am getting a five buck shopping voucher every week.

oh, the benefits of having a fuel card and doing 400 miles per day.
