Just put nearly £75 quids worth in my Tucson and that garage was cheaper than most. Now diesel is about 50% more than not so long ago! Good job I don't do a stack of mileage and am not driving for a living and feel sorry for those who are.
We normally use the Jeep at least twice a week as it is very comfortable. However we will be using the Corolla auto as still gets over 40mpg for a 25 year old car. Keep use of Jeep for bad weather, long distance and towing until fuel prices drop a bit as £1.53 for a litre of diesel is pricy! Unleaded price is not far behind though!

In our area, Beds / Bucks, the petrol is about 2 to 3 pence a litre lower than Diesel.

Not sure how they do it but a BP petrol station near us has petrol at £142.9 and diesel at £146 .9 which is cheaper than the supermarkets. They are selling a lot though so may be that is the secret.

Going to Coventry yesterday the most expensive that I saw was at 152.9 for petrol. Even in Coventry a local Shell was 148.9, and an ASDA on the A46 just off the motorway was more expensive than my fill up at home with Esso. “Grateful of Wiltshire” is me despite an enormous diversion from Cirencester with the Fosse northbound closed once again for works. You could spend a month touring Britain on an endless “ linked” series of yellow diversion signs. Heavens help any overseas visitors who would find it confusing as to where one ends and the next begins.

Even more annoying is when they have a lane closed off for a considerable distance with stop go traffic and there are only one or tow people wandering around seemingly doing nothing in particular.
A few years ago we had a main road to a small town blocked off for 3 days. Detour was several miles. In those 3 days we never saw a single workmen and they did absolutely nothing to the road?
Quite often on a motorway they will have a lane closed for a few miles, but only working on a small section of the road. Surely just a half a mile or maybe a mile before the activity area would have been adequate?

According to todays Mail we ae being ripped of on the price. The wholesale price has gone down by about 3p a litre but the pump price has normally gone up by about the same amount over the last week.

I support the petition on the grounds it gives more visibility to peoples dissatisfaction with the fuel retailers practices. Although CMA have looked at it before and basically concluded that whilst response to oil price variations was definitely skewed, the retailers weren’t actually breaking any laws, and there was a basis for competition in most areas. Problem being no one wants to be first in reducing their price. Best we can hope for in the short term is a “ Christmas gift” from ASDA. ⛽🤶

The fuel duty is a set sum per litre and that has not been increased now for several review periods. the VAT is set percentage, so the Govt is only taking what they are due, Its the oil barons that are pushing the price up not the Government.

The astonishing issue to me is the price of crude now compared to the price when the UK price of diesel broke through the £1/1L barrier. Crude and the value Sterling were what pushed the price of fuel up, according to what we were told then. Now, we are told the relatively low price of crude is not it. Someone is taking the Mickey. We don't do much mileage so not bothered too much, but It's simply not fair, is it?

Still price of Esso diesel is £1.49.9
Had to put in £10 yesterday and the cost per litre for unleaded was £1.549!

In addition I don't think that is the official gov website for petitions? I wonder if they are they harvesting email addresses?
