Seems Marine Garage has added 3p to their fuel prices even though the rise doesn't happen until August.

Who's selling the cheapest fuel then at the moment? The MG or Sainsbury's just down the road?

Sainsburys, god knows why MG put their prices up. They need to go down else they'll be closing soon!

Petrol has gone up because of an increase in oil prices was on the news teatime, the average price now is over 140p per litre. Sainsburys can keep theirs a bit cheaper as they are a large corporation, MG is a small business

I'm sorry Roberta, but that is not necessarily the case. Yes, barrel prices have just increased, yet again, but this shouldn't affect forecourt prices until weeks afterwards. Unfortunately too many retailers profiteer by increasing forecourt prices as soon as barrel prices increase. Yet unsurprisingly when barrel prices drop, these retailers then take weeks to drop their forecourt prices.

Nelson at it again hasent a clue what he's talking about but just has to disagree with everyone. The forecourt price has nothing to do with the retailer as they will try and keep competative if posible. The price is actually dictated by the supplier as part of the retailers agreement. In the case of MG that will be Texaco. Get your facts right or shut up as others have told you before

This thread isn't about me. I notice that you fail to disagree about the fact that profiteering takes place. Be it the retailer or the supplier is semantics. I buy my petrol from a petrol station, and such minor technicalities are irrelevant when deciding which petrol station to use. The price, however, is very relevant.
