Hi Folks, more good news

Supermarket chain Asda is to reduce the cost of petrol at all 172 of its UK outlets from Friday.

Asda said the price of petrol would be reduced by 2p a litre to 92.9p a litre but diesel would remain unchanged at 106.9p a litre.

The company said falling US demand for gasoline had helped push down the price of petrol, whereas diesel costs remained steady.

Asda trading director Darren Blackhurst said: "We are seeing further reductions in our cost price which we're immediately passing on to all our customers as we continue to lead down the price of petrol.

"Diesel costs remain high and leave no room for further cuts at this stage."

Don't think that's right is it John? I thought fuel duty was the same on petrol and diesel. More likely the fuel companies using diesel as a cash cow.

But if everyone changed to buying petrol engine vehicles........hey presto! Petrol prices would then be higher than diesel.......at least in rip off UK. :Angry:

There was a time when diesel was the cheapest fuel here, simply because apart from trucks, nobody bought a car with a diesel engine.

When threads were running eariier this year about prices rising I looked at the AA comparison which includes European countries as well as the UK. In those countries where petrol fuelled cars predominate, petrol costs more than diesel.

As we all know, prices vary between fuel stations owned by most companies within countries as well.

Not rip off UK, not rip off Europe - rip off world where the fuel suppliers are charging as much as they think they can get away with in each place where they have an outlet.
