    well we have all heard on the news that Gas prices are falling......

    I have an account for filling up the old "GASIT" system with Countrywide Farmers with only 5% VAT as its for "domestic use" ( cooking and heating! ) and boy was i surprised and pleased to get this email yesterday.

    Quote"
    Dear Mr ,

    I am delighted to announce that your Autogas price will be reduced to 52.4ppl plus VAT, effective from 1st January 2015.
    A reduction in the cost of wholesale LPG and improved stability in the market means that we can pass on this benefit to our customers.

    so thats 55.02 pence per Litre. :clap2: . ... dont see Calor doing anything close any time soon :frowny:

    Thats very good. I'm paying 59p at the moment at my local garage, reduced from 74p two months ago, and I thought that was OK. (LPG powered car).

    those are good prices inclusive of 20%VAT..

    there are only a couple of places local that you can get LPG "at all" certainly no supermarkets.

    Better fill before you visit tourist ripoff scarborough.....if you have nowhere better to go, but that will be difficult.

    Still 67.9p...has been for the last 3 years.

    No real competition is the problem.

    Crikey :eek: That has reminded me that when I flew hot air balloons we use to buy our gas at 11 pence per litre (mid 90's). Made you, we could get through 600 to 700 litres in one weekend :eek:
