Re: diesel prices in your area

I was passing Sainsburys Forestside this morning and they were displaying a price of 133.5 per litre although it not uncommon for them to change the prices at short notice. I have seen them change prices twice in one day.

Also consider the extra cost in fuel and wear and tear travelling a greater distance to save a few pence.

Check out the following links - the seond link relates to an article published in the Belfast Telegraph.

Hmmm I wouldn't go out of my way to fill up the tank it would only be if I was passing it! And I often drive past forestside! but my car doesn't like the diesel at sainsbury's! The mpg drops and it seems slugish!

Re: diesel prices in your area

Prices here seem to have stabilised for a while,at one stage it seemed to go up every day,but recently things have calmed down/dropped back and they have stayed at the 1.36-1.38 a litre for diesel,petrol a couple of pence less.

It's certaintly effected us,both at work and at home.We have introduced a fuel surchange at work which is reviewed each month,as said it's passing the cost on down the line rather than stomaching it this time.With resources at an all time low something had to be done.And at home,our bus hasn't been used for a fortnight.......

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Diesel is dropping nicely, now. I can get it in South Croydon where I work for 134.9p/litre. That's still stupid, but it's better than the 142.9p/litre peak.

Re: diesel prices in your area

If your a sainsbury's shopper already (in shop or internet) you get 10p off a litre of fuel if you spend 60 or more on food.

I filled up today at 133.9 (not at sainsbury's i might add)
