now first off... I KNOW Tesco are still more expensive than Morrisons and BP at the moment for fuel... (edit - MOST TESCO's NOW DOWN IN PRICE eg UNLEADED 99.9)
but they'll be the same price by Monday when this promo starts (promo will be nationwide). Last time Morrison's did the price cut thing the folk at Head Office took 3-4 days to issue the "reduce prices" notice ( when realising the difference in profit I think!!).
However if they do not cut them by now which I doubt will be the case, with the 5p a litre voucher it'll still bring the price of fuel a bit under Morrisons and BP prices.
I know this is occuring because for my sins I work in a Tesco petrol station and last night had to read and sign a memo from Head Office about it and how to process the coupons. Starts Monday and they stop giving out the vouchers beginning of Dec sometime I can't remember date offhand, so it'll be running for a good while.
And folk ARE going elsewhere at the moment - what a difference to our usual queues out the forecourt!! Last night was soooo quiet it was the quietest I've seen it in years. Not that us staff mind of course!! We prefer it nice and quiet... but I'm sure Tesco doesn't! And my poor manager and us had folk earbashing us all last night and today about the price difference. I wish folk would understand we have no power to just drop prices without the Head Office say so :)
Sorry I know I ramble but know folk would ask things I've covered in here...
hope this has not been posted before - I sure couldn't find it when doing a search.
