Further fuel cuts at Morrisons from Thursday (27th August) 2p of unleaded / 1p off diesel before Bank Holiday weekend

Found 26th Aug 2015
Motorists hoping to get away for the Bank Holiday will be given a welcome boost because fuel prices are being slashed ahead of the weekend.
Supermarket Morrisons has sparked a potential price war by announcing that it will be cutting the cost of unleaded by 2p per litre, and diesel by 1p per litre from Thursday morning.

The move is the second time this week that fuel prices have been cut, and means that unleaded will be 18p per litre cheaper than is was at last year's August Bank Holiday.

​Go to the cheapest then...

Don't know why people celebrate 1p off a litre of fuel, price should have been well under £1 litre for ages due to crude prices, its taking ages to get there and then will just go back up

**** supermarket accounts are getting a bit much on hukd. There ruining the hunt.

Go to France lol, filled up at carrefour for 0.78p/litre, long way to go though

Cold.
I filled up the weekend & by yesteday the price had increased 2p.
So now they are cutting the price back to last weekends prices ready for this week.

Support your local garges and not the supermarkets!

0.78p per litre?

Really?

Cor that's cheap
if it were true
which I doubt...

I thought all supermarket fuel was bad anyway...

Currently in France, and cheapest unleaded here is 1.30 euro a litre (abut 95p)

*Carrefour in Cusset (Vichy)

no reaction from asda yet?

Diesel is €1.05 a litre in Northern France yesterday , which is a huge saving filling up a tank of 60 litres before returning to UK.

A price war don,t think so the cost price as come well down lower but the government as well as the supermarkets and utilities must save these pennies

Carrefour fuel is 1.08 euro which when I exchanged at a rate of 1.4/1£ worked out at 0.78p I filled up twice once in courselles sur mer normandy and the other at cite Europe calais. The price ranges in France as well as 2 other garages were 1.14 euro and 1.24 euro. So yeah it is true

Not true - a reduction in crude does not mean in immediate reduction at the pumps, takes time to filter down.

But why, then, does an increase in crude immediately result in price hikes? Its a scam, pam

I agree, that should not happen. And whilst it seems it does, it doesn't very often with the supermarkets.

I ah

I agree with most comments, crude oil is half what it was 2 years ago, still we are paying too much, I was in France and it cost me 1.011 euro per litre which is approx 70p/ litre, so yes we are getting scammed here, BP down the road are selling diesel at 1.29/ litre, but wait as soon as the crude goes up by 10% you will be hit straight away with price hike at the pump,

Tax. If we get back to one pound a litre the government gets 74.62p of that. Everybody else - retailer/transport/wholesaler/refiner/oil producer/oil explorer gets 25.38p.

It is impossible to get down to the French price without cutting tax. You'd be paying 0.32p p/l to everyone but the taxman at 70p/litre.

Check the numbers out:

the price of petrol is high due to taxes and the greedy oil companies keeping supplies low deliberately.

0.78p / litre?! Seriously? That would work out to be roughly £5 to fill up an average family car.

​The large companies buy their crude on futures market (they are now processing crude bought 90 days or more ago) hence the time it takes for the price of fuel to come down. However supermarkets buy fuel on spot market and should therefore reflect the current crude price, which it doesn't because we all know how poor the supermarkets are in this time of zero hour contracts and the likes of aldi & lidl pinching customers and obscene profit margins

A penny hell that'll save me at least 20p a week.

It's just a pity it doesn't work the opposite way as well as we all know as soon as the price of oil goes up the prices at pumps go up almost immediately.

Morrisons petrol station Beverley closed when I just went with staff blocking the entrance.

Supermarket fuel is rubbish, it may be cheap but if you do a fill with Shell or BP you will soon see that you are getting more mileage.
