    I have just noticed that our local two filling stations are selling diesel 1 ppl cheaper than the cheapest petrol. Not having a diesel vehicle, I was not aware of the cost of diesel.
    It always was 4 or 5 ppl dearer than petrol, what has changed, and more to the point, why?

    I think there was another thread on this yesterday. Combination of supply/demand issues, China slowdown and a retail price war

    Don't know but it's been like that for a couple of weeks, we first noticed it in Wales. Here it's been up to ten pence a litre dearer for ages.

    You can see how the price of diesel started to overtake that of petrol (up to 2005) from This Document. There are more detailed figures for 2000 to 2010 Here and Here.
