Really? No one gives you prices over the phone. First time i rung, normally i go to my normal Tesco but since they have increased it, rung up a few places but they refused to say. is it all over the UK by some law or just my area that they cant say prices over the phone. Wierdness

Prices online are, at best, yesterdays prices. You're right about competition law - it's to avoid you staff doing anything that could be seen as price fixing

I'm alway sceptical about these sites and phone apps. I passed Tesco's station as I was going in store and when I came out it was 2p dearer!

There is one iphone app that uses (supposedly) credit card data to work out absolute latest prices from certain forecourts.

I think this is a good post. It's annoying that they don't give out prices. I phoned queensferry in asda to ask and the petrol station wouldn't give me the price, so I phoned their customer services and they looked out of their window and told me the price.

he says u r not allowed as competitors ring to find out


It's a silly rule though isn't it "Oh we won't tell anyone over the phone, but we'll put it on a massive sign outside the petrol station"

I phoned Morrison's in Milton Keynes once and they told me their petrol prices. I phoned a Shell garage nearby and they asked me which garage was I calling from :-D

Wouldn't the credit card details just have the total amount spent, not volume of petrol?
