    8p ltr cheaper than our cheapest.....pissed off living in this rip-off town.

    One independant garage just 10 miles away is selling at 120.9p......4p cheaper than our local supermarkets.

    Petrol companies. Duty is the same on both fuels. Diesel became more expensive here when people started buying diesel cars.

    Simply supply and demand......... There has been a shortage of refined diesel (it is neither dirty nor unrefined, but a blend of components with additives the same way as gasoline is blended) due to very high demand in China and other Asian countries, meaning that the traders can sell for more profit over there, causing an arbitrage in pricing. With the slow down in China and India that arbitrage has narrowed and combined with what is effectively a glut of fuel in USA the refinery price difference here in Europe has narrowed as well. Add in to that the fact that diesel and gasoline are taxed the same here in UK and there is the explanation
