The DVLAs ongoing complete incompetence continues to save me from these high prices.

Thanks DVLA.

I realise things are bought wholesale so it takes time for price drops to reach the forecourts, but isn`t it weird how the prices go up quickly but come down so slowly. Is this them trying to make back the revenues lost in 2020?

If retail prices matched wholesale they would have been paying folk to take petrol off their hands in 2020

Wow that’s surprising, I remember it being comparatively expensive so don’t even consider it as an option despite being in Crossford so thanks for the tip off 👍🏼

I filled up at my local Tesco just now and said to the lassie behind the till "every time I drive past the price has gone up another 2p"
She said "well you will be glad you filled up today as it is going up another 8p yes 8p Tomorrow" :-((

In June 2008, Brent crude oil was $132.32 per barrel; average UK petrol price 106.4p a litre.

Now, around $125 a barrel; petrol price nearly £2 a litre.
Corporate profiteering, VAT & fuel duties are picking our pockets, destroying lives

Govt doing nothing about it.

The government don`t really care as it means more for them in taxes.

Nice little earner for both sides right now. There needs to be a protest now or it`ll never go down to where it should be.

It`s the same with gas and electricity prices. This isn`t sustainable.

Exchange rates worked into costing.

Extraordinary stat via #WATO: in 2008, when oil prices peaked at $144/barrel, no one in Britain paid more than 120p per litre of petrol. Today, oil price is $113 but pump prices 186p litre. Difference is collapse in sterling from $2 to $1.20. Welcome to the Brexit.

Aye, but to be fair, the collapse of the pound mostly happened in 2008-2009 before Brexit was even thought about.

The prices in the USA are also out of whack with crude prices. I’m not sure what’s happening, but there’s definitely something else going on with refinery capacity and supply chains.

Not sure how, but Morrisons in Kirkcaldy seems to be 5p/l cheaper than Tesco in Dunfermline. Those robbing barstewards already lost my trade when they let that daft McDonalds open. Now BP is cheaper than them so they can swivel.

In Spain at the moment and get 10% discount at the pump, I think that is on top of the 20% discount from the Spanish government & oil companies.

I was down near London and in the midlands last week. Our prices are higher than theirs.

Garage in Newton, across the water was £2.03 for diesel. That’s the first one up here I’ve seen, over that threshold.

Meanwhile, oil prices continue to fall…

They have fallen but so has the pound against dollar which is what oil is priced in.

Don`t use Tesco. They`re taking the urine.

If you use normal unleaded then ASDA is probably cheapest. For premium unleaded Shell, BP and Murco (Cairneyhill) are all cheaper than Tesco in Dunfermline who are robbing hoors.

Dollar/GBP hasn`t changed as significantly as prices. You`re talking a 10-15% decrease. Whereas fuel has gone up almost 50% compared to last year.

This is all a con so they can drop it down to £1.50p/l in a few months and act like they`re doing us a favour.

Was in Dundee this morning. Asda £1.86, another 1 or 2 £1.88. Here £1.90 Seems to be the benchmark.
How come here I can fill up at bp dalgety bay for less than Tesco when historically here`s been a huge difference in favour of Tesco? They`re at it.

Tesco have always been like that. When I worked in Edinburgh they used to charge 4 or 5p more at Duloch than they did at Queensferry or Corstorphine. Completely at it.
