voted hot. I hope the rest of them follow suit cause theres no asda that close to me with a petrol station cant believe that it will be below 90p soon !!!!
[helper]#2
Good move Asda, although I'm sure they could have taken it to 89.9 quite easily and are just saving that drop to drive Christmas sales in a few weeks! Before any one asks, diesel will be staying put @ 106.9p due to world demand being higher for diesel than petrol these days.
#3
My local BP garage is 93.9p.

I hope Sainsbury's drop their price cos I've got a 5p off per litre voucher :roll:
#4
The rest will follow or lose out

voted hot!
#6
92.9p for all the pedants out there.
#7
Damn diesel!!!! Although it is still far cheaper for me to run diesel (to the tune of about 600 sheets a year) than petrol... Am sure they could knock diesel down to a quid no probs, I don't buy this "high world demand" for a second...
#9
tesco near me is 93.9 used my 5p off voucher so worked out as 88.9!
#10
very good , still too high though and no food price cuts yet (didnt they raise food prices because of the cost of fuel *cough*)
#11
Yes, but the world's food is transported via DIESEL lorries. Unfortunately we are still getting absolutely fleeced for diesel - I paid £1.12p this morning.

It's frustrating that fewer people care about fuel prices because petrol has dropped significantly but diesel is far more expensive comparatively than it has ever been before. :(

There's no point in having a diesel car any more - ~£2k more to buy to start with and 10-20% more expensive than petrol.
#12
Bu**er. Just filled up at Asda this morning at 94.9p/l :(

Yep thats so true, when i got my first Diesel car about 10 years ago it was around 10p a litre cheaper than Petrol , now its around 12-15p a litre more
#14
Still ripping us off then.
#15
Room for further cuts tbh.
#16
Good find, hopefully tesco will follow?? I have a 5p off per litre for there, plus I think you get something off for being staff too??! Yippee!
#17
If it wasn't for the supermarkets cutting prices at the pumps, we would all still be paying over a quid a litre....
#18
The pound is losing its value against the dolar at an unbelievable speed. I don't think we have seen the end of the price drops but I don't think they are going to go as low as some people here might think.
#19
Current average US pump price is $2.40 per gallon. That's about 31p per litre.

It is funny that we consider 92.9p HOT and the yanks bitch like hell about prices.
#20
Voted cold because ASDA is still ripping us off with the diesel price. :x
#21
The problem is that people should be looking at the Diesel price NOT the petrol price, the delivery vans all use Diesel when this gets cheaper so will your food.
#22
Agreed diesel needs to go below the £1 mark!! Although I will fill up at asda now as the 5p off at tesco I had I couldn't use due to them having no diesel so they have lost my business!!

Yeah, but the Americans don't have an NHS which is where most of our fuel tax revenue goes on.

I know the large PLC I work for doesn't pay what it says on the pump for diesel, they pay about 2p per litre less due to the fleet size and £££'s its worth

1 US gallons = 3.78541178 litres
$2.40 / 3.785 = 63.4012926 cents per litre
0.634012926 U.S. dollars = 0.399378221 UK£

So it's 40p a litre. The pound is getting weaker, and US gallons are smaller than British gallons. They also drive further each year than us, and have cars with higher fuel consumption.

Surely that works the other way.....

$60 @ $2 = £30 a barrel
$60 @$1.58 = £38 a barrel

Oil prices seem to have leveled out for now probably due to OPEC cut backs.

Just heard on 5live that Tesco (and was it Sainsbury's?) are following suit and dropping prices by 2p.

What a particularly stupid and uninformed remark!

Many folks do not live in an area served by Asda!

It is well known that petrol retailers lucky enough to live outside Asda's reach continue to overcharge and rip off motorists - these include Sainsburys in particular! Where I live they can stuff their conning 5p off vouchers!

glad I didnt fill up this morning, but yet another being ripped of with diesel

The biggest ripoff merchants are Tesco's, always the last to reduce and when they have the 5pence per litre off promotion, there prices are at least 2/3pence dearer at the pump.

Despite the halving of the oil price, just had a letter from Eon saying they were increasing gas & electricity prices, eventhough these are linked to price of oil.

Agree about Tesco
suspended#32
My local texaco is beating all the leading supermarkets. Now been selling at 92.8p for nearly a week and its the only garage i've seen that uses .8 and not .9.

Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire. I guess it may even drop lower if asda are coming down to 92.9. :thumbsup:
banned#33
it's bound to go back up in the future :(

Asda and Tesco both produce their own biodiesel for use in their distribution lorries. so presuming duty stays the same so should their (much lower) costs. Alright.. it doesn't cover the people who supply the food to them as well... but the way food prices have been going up there is definitely some fleasings going on me thinks! :whistling:
#35
I think I will start taking petrol in my tea.

It will be cheaper than milk shortly!
#36
Shell is the cheapest here and is cheaper than all the supermarkets despite being miles away from any of them, they reduce their prices before any of the supermarkets do.

And ive changed energy supplier 3 times already this year due to the usual "were cheaper" then 10 weeks later the charges go up, personally i think its about time power suppliers became government owned, id rather line some fat politicians back pocket than shuttle the money off shore to boost some other countries economy.
#37
morrisons 92.9 round our way
#38
