Re: Supermarket Petrol

spot on mr t, the main reason why fuel prices are so high in this country is that we as motorists don't shop around and create a competitive market. hence petrol companies will continue to increase prices way above those dictated by the price of oil .

It amazes me that some people will travel several miles to a supermarket to save 2p on a can of beans but then just drive to the local filling station which is several pence per litre more than one a couple of miles away.

Yes, fuel duty is unfairly high in this country, but the profiteering of oil companies is down to us.
