Supermarket Petrol

I was in Newport South Wales this morning and bought petrol at Sainsburys costing 1.32. This afternoon I was in Chetenham where petrol at Sainsburys was 1.26. Now my question, how is it that supermarkets charge such varying prices. They are after all national concerns and collect fuel from various refinaries nationally, so it's not as if they have massive transport costs.
I have noticed that the same is true for Tesco aswell.

How much is fuel in your area?

N.B Fuel is available at other forecourts
