    a local petrol station has just reopened under new ownership in scarborough and the prices are £1.06 petrol and £1.16 diesel. never noticed LPG :Doh:
    is this an average price ? its 2p cheaper than any other around here.

    the previous owner was selling at £1.15 diesel and £1.05 petrol.........18 months ago :Eeek::Eeek:when the average was around 85p for derv
    needless to say he had very little custom except business accounts.:Doh:

    I checked the price in Florida today as I'm off in a couple of weeks.

    $3.30 a gallon so even at 1.70 exchange its still only £1-94p a gallon
