Supermarkets reduce petrol prices !

FINALLY a "Tad" of good news, but DONT hold your breathe for "Sainsbury's" you must spend over £50 before you can benefit from the reduction which is harsh as most cars would be full on £40/£45...

"Sainsbury's said petrol would be 5p cheaper, but only for customers who spend £50 or more."

I think that's on general shopping and not just on a fuel purchase. That's how it usually works.

GRIDD" PHEW...then in that case it'll be two bread loafs & a pint of milk then youve got your £50 spent eh..

Does this mean the weekend roads will get busier again. I quite liked the quietness of yesteryear that the high prices brought. It was like driving in the '70s again... but without the flares and Afro:)

Tesco around my neck of the woods have had the 5pence off, if you spend over £50 in-store for a month or more. I note that the Tesco spokesman stated " always looked to match competitors locally". Not in my area, the local independent as for the past month or more been 1pence lower than Tesco prices, and nectar points as well.

Morrisons who are 2/3 mile away, are also about 3 to 4 pence cheaper. So it looks like Tesco are not doing a very good job of price matching.

ASDA @ Switch Island at the end of the M57 are down to £1.13.9

I have 9 fuel stations within 10 miles all selling @ 130p per liter for Diesel, including Tesco, Asda,Sainsburys, CO-op and Morrisons. so no shopping round needed. Tesco ran a Spend £50 on grocery and get 5p per of the price of fuel but it only ran for about a 2 weeks.

Tesco does give a 1p for points loyalty return so I suppose that is something. I threw a Nectar card away because I felt I had to spend a fortune to get a plastic toy for a a reduced price.

If it was old money pricing,then a litre would be probably the most expensive ever.When I started driving,petrol was 75p a gallon. :)

54p for my first gallon.
