Local market forces will always play a part, although I was going to post a quip about how everything is cheaper up north, but that doesn't seem to be the case :-\

All I know is that it's going up quickly!  :(

I paid 124.9p for DERV at Costco Bristol today.  Last week it was 119.9p.  :o

If you take LPG as an example, Birmingham Area has always been the Cheapest for LPG within the UK, closely followed by Leeds and parts of Manchester / Liverpool, having said that East London isnt that far behind and its quiet amazing how East and West London have always had a relative prices difference.

Market demand, too much, not enough, local Competition, Stock Reserves, they all play the part.

In Gibraltar last Tuesday 0.91p p/l.

Driving around this week, cheapest I've seen is 1.23 p/l the dearest 1.48p/l.Unleaded. on motorway of course. Because it costs more to deliver, ????  That's what a manager at Moto once said.

euro 1.25 for diesel and petrol around 1.35 here in Spain.

Interestingly, as I have observed before, it comes down quicker than in the Uk.

Methinks the Conservatives will be having a word in the retailers ears to bring the price down. Last thing needed is inflation at this stage of Brexit.

Was told by a tanker driver a few years ago that how far the filling station was from the refinery/depot made a difference. Was he yanking my chain. :-\

Nope as it has to get from the refinery to the tanks...

A truck will be averaging somewhere between 5 and 10 mpg and will typically cost 200k... so it doesn't take a genius to work that out ;)

They do, if you're prepared to look, although they do have a captive audience  ;)
