Ban commodity speculation. The thought that people can be starving because JP Morgan are playing speculators with food and so pricing it out of the poorests mouth to improve profit margin by 0.01% is obscene. Similar nonsense is going on with crude prices which you and I are paying the cost of in our tanks.
Some people think "brand name" fuel, like BP & Shell, is better than "own brand" fuel in supermarkets. They don't seem to realise that it comes out of the same hole in the ground, and the same tanks in the refinery.
Yes, BP & Shell have superior fuels with additives, but they're even more expensive.
Near where I work Tesco have diesel at £140.9 (yesterday's price), but the BP station at the other side of the junction was £143.9. It's just most people use the BP garage because it's just before the motorway slip road...
I mentioned in another thread the other day, that our local Tesco filling station was forming queues for £1.32 litre and an independent was about 7pence dearer, with virtually no trade. A expert at the time was stating that oil prices had come down, and there was no need for increases at the pumps. It looks like his comments were correct.
Was going to fill up yesterday but decided not to, maybe tomorrow?.
Sainsburys and Tesco near where I live are both £139.9 for 4* and £140.9 for diesel. In my experience Tesco round this way is always the first to put its prices up, and also charges different prices at its own forecourts. The other week while driving in The New Forest one garage had diesel at £146.9 needless to say I did not stop there.
