They've always been scandalously high, copied by the other one by Tesco.

Morrisons peckham is generally 15-20p cheaper

When this garage first opened it was the cheapest in the area. Now the most expensive

my brother was told by one of his work colleagues that used to know one of them personally at the time.

Thread policing again. Not daft at all. Useful for others to know about.

It's a whingy thread FM. And a little hypocritical for you to talk about internet police where you are criticising my freedom of speech. The internet police would simply censor posts. Now if the thread was titled recommendations for filling stations that would be helpful. Sadly social media is an outlet for people saying what they don't like rather than a constructive debate.

Try petrol prices, online & app for the best prices around. I always use it when it's time to put some in the tank. Although I don't fill completely, only what I need for a few weeks.

I'm not though suggesting you stop posting, telling you what you should or shouldn't post or saying your response is 'daft'. I'd imagine the 'right to whinge' also falls under freedom of speech?

Ok,but not helpful to suggest that I have the authority to control what is posted in this forum. I'll avoid further provocative language.

On the subject filling station numbers have drastically declined in the last 30 years due to cut throat competition. Many have been replaced with hand car washes, second hand car lots and the like. The entry of the large supermarket chains changed everything. Few are now surviving unless their filling station is part of a retail site. We are in a use it or lose it situation, go to many a small French town and you may find a couple of pumps at maybe 15 percent more than Carrefour.

Government will not act to level things up between smaller companies and the large retailers, price maintenance going in the 60s. Exactly the same for the village butcher, baker and candlestick maker.

Haven't a clue if this filling station sets a fair price, balancing this with demand although there are other alternatives too, relatively close by

Fortunately I do little driving but have almost run out in the past when passing outlets and refusing to go in due to price.

Internet is of course a great way to compare prices, and I know from cycling past Asda on OKR is very cheap but doubt if it is worth 40 mins of my time to save a few quid.

There's also the matter of whether the UK should have done more to preserve our North Sea oil and gas and whether we let the multi nationals have too much control. Remember Thatch saying as crude priced dropped in the mid 80s how wonderful this was for motorists, taking the credit, but not saying it was a finite resource and impacted our environment was not in het vocabulary.

Not sure about profiteering, which I expect has happened ever since communities traded in ancient history.

I've probably killed this thread stone dead!

There's sod all money in selling diesel or petrol these days - it's just a hook to get people into the convenience store.
