Scorching!

Brilliant, keep them coming ASDA. Thanks OP. Heat added.

Great stuff. But can they please stop ripping us off for diesel!! After all, the production costs are the same.

Ots not just production cost, its all about supply and demand.

Waiting for all the I don't buy supermarket fuel comments to start.

economist says it could be a quid a litre in a couple of months, but once it goes down bet the government pumps up the tax again

Hot by the way, I think it will keep falling for a while still.

never used to take note of petrol prices till recently, i went to a texico garage and got 15.5 litres for 20 pounds, went to asda and got 17.5 litres for the 20 pounds. i take note now lol thanks op. helps with the weekly running costs!

I wish we had an Asda, or any supermarket petrol station localy, the cheapest around here at present is £1.21 for petrol and £1.26 for diesel, maybe it'll drop a bit tomorrow to compete, but probably not as the nearest supermarket is 20 miles away.

Why's the price always point something?

Who's ripping you off ? The government ?

At 118.7p the tax is about 78p, so to get the fuel out of the ground and in to your car costs 40p, sounds quite cheap to me !

I was only saying that the other day, and normally it's always .9p, but i have noted of late that it has been .7p sometimes, is there any other thing that you buy that is priced like this, it's not as though you can purchase £9.99.9 worth of fuel and expect .1p change!

The answer is in the title, the price is closer to £1.13 a litre, but the 'point' makes a lot of people think it's cheaper than it is, hence the £1.12.

I'm referring to the disparity between the cost of diesel and the cost of petrol,. but many thanks for your fatuous comment.

I'm guessing someone is taking the p*ss somewhere along the supply chain, as i think i'm correct in thinking that there is less processing involved to refine diesel than there is for petrol, and so therefore less costs, and considering the amount of diesel vehicles on the roads nowadays i can't see that they can claim there's a lower demand for it than petrol.

Not long at all, the fuel quality in asda is rubbish.

Asda has been doing it for a while, they started years ago with the CDs ending .87.

Supposedly it's a marketing tactic.

Any lower petrol price is welcome!

Prices should be much lower than this, supermarket fuel is going to destroy my car, why does diesel cost more?! BLA BLA BLA - Thread in a nutshell

Any reduction is welcome! Voted hot!

Last time Crude Oil was ~$60 per barrel (~2004-7) we were paying <100 ppl. Still overpriced but getting there slowly.

Fuel is a by-product of the oil process anyway, if we didn't have cars/vans/trucks/buses etc that use what is essentially leftover then the oil companies wouldn't know what to do with it. 40p a litre (with no tax) is cheap yes, but it hasn't cost the oil companies anything anyway if that makes sense.

Also another point, it's stupid they put prices at .9 or .7 or whatever as technically if you want to purchase exactly 2 litres of fuel they can possibly give you the change, that's why you will never ever be able to put exactly 2 litres in at the pump, it either goes slightly over or stops slightly under

*can't

btw fueling to a round price (£20) or quantity (20L) makes you lose a few pence. Don't stop and go near the end, just stop once.

i totally agree. except its cheaper for diesel as its pure. petrol requires more stuff doing to it to refine it. diesel should be loads cheaper. nice to see the prices going down though :-)

Amazing! Just at the right time too, my car needs filling up Heat

When fuel prices took an age to begin to drop, who complained it was taking too long?

A lot of people probably didn't consider the fuel was bought at the higher price by the supermarkets etc. So this was to be sold at the cost so supermarkets didn't lose out. Makes sense...

So now the costs are still low, we're finally starting to see the results.

With regards to the diesel costs, I do think that's shocking too. Government recommended diesels, more people bought diesels, diesel price went up. Now, just wait for the electric cars to take off. Watch the electric prices soar.

oh for the days of 50p a gallon lol, but that was 4 star, many years ago lol

Me thinks you rather missed the point - a litre of petrol here is 112.7p, i.e. £1.12.7! Leaving a fraction (.3 of a penny) off £1.13p! In your example I can handover 87p, but I cannot hand over £1.12.7!

wonder how much in costco?

give it some time.. maybe next year USA will be involved in some conflict war who will be the so called "Saviour".
Prices of oil will jump sky high again....
TIP: if you have the money invest in oil companies before a war then reap the rewards of blood money

anyway.. heat at this price

I once filled up at Asda then my dog died the following day... i would avoid!

Off to fill up my 1998 Saxo with Shell V Power Nitro Plus

The cheap diesel makes me go to ASDA and I also do my shopping there becasue I am so close to store.

This is a lesson to the other supermarkets

It's getting better but don't think it'll ever get to under £1 per litre. I was actually talking to a friend who lives in the states and they were saying they filled their Hummer (around 90 litres) the other day for $36/£22, it's just crazy the difference in price.

The real fuel con is the airlines,

Notice they are still charging £150 plus in fuel surcharges on long haul flights that were introduced at the peak oil prices yet have never been removed or reduced

That is what should be looked at as its nothing more than a blatant rip off now

wow
