Lol sods law isn't it!

Why is there a 14/15p per litre difference between petrol and diesel, price of petrol keeps dropping, diesel is hardly shifting. I remember when diesel was cheaper than petrol.

That was in the good old days when you had a petrol car and wished you had a diesel.

Just ain't fair is it.

Yeah i know it ******* you off doesn't it ? Used to be a lot cheaper.

been waiting for this since asda dropped to 90.0p. our store (redcar) is 1 of only 8 morrisons that is doing an offer for 2 weeks where if you spend £40 in store (already doing this to get the £20 voucher as well as using staf discount! :)) you get 5p off every litre!

Anyone remember when it was 70p per gallon ?

I think it will go down to about 79.9p litre next year

Just been watching the news, oil is now below $50 a barrel, a few months ago it was $150+

I believe it's something to do with the transport industry. For some reason their demand is keeping diesel prices up. At least that's what someone on here said in another post ages ago. I don't think it's just over here either, probably around the world in countries such as China who seem to be booming at the moment.

Because everybody believes the government!!!!!!!!
They say buy diesel and we will make it cheaper so we all go out and buy more diesel cars,,,,,,then more diesel sold so they hike he tax ffs.
If everyone converted their car to gas then the goverment would increase its tax.
WHO IS THE CRIMINALS???????? you tell me
I drive a merc yes with 226carbons but only do 60 miles a week idf someone owns an aygo with say 100carbons but does say 500 miles a week they are emmitting 5 times more pollution. Isnt it about time theroad tax (which incidentally isn't all used to better the roads) is put into the price of fuel?
This way they wouldn't have to pay peoples wages to catch the tax dodgers ffs.
IS THIS TOO CLEVER FOR OUR SO CALLED CLEVEREST PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY????????
Mr Brown contact me if you hear of this i have lots more ideas.
BY GOD YOU NEED THEM FAST!!!!!!!!!!

They'll be giving it away next Pleased I didn't fill up today now :thumbsup:

It's one of the few benefits of the global financial shitstorm we're dozing into. Overall we're being shafted a lot harder than we're being helped.

Think this as cheap as it can get - the tax element means that the margin is possibly negative now - probably a loss leader in the run to Christmas.

Just to put it in perspective - Asda were charging 79.9p in June 2004 that makes inflation roughly 2.8% per year on petrol at this price - happy times.:-D

oil companies will cut production when it gets a little bit cheaper, this will bump the price back over £1 a litre

im not great at maths but if thats the case then surely prices SHOULD be or SHOULD soon be at 40p per litre in the new year???? Technically if it was 109.9p when it was $150 a barrel and now its $50 a barrel.... roughly should be 40p per litre yes no???

Jaggs no as the price is also dictated by the 65p a litre that Mr Brown decides he needs. Not a chance of it going much lower than this. If you think haulage profit and staff monies have to be taken out that 25p surely they cant drop it much more??

I thought OPEC had already decided to cut production

Im just looking at facts.

Other countries will probably go down to 40p but here i think your right it wont go less than 69p in the new year MIN. Thanks robbing government taking 80%

Well, you pay after you've filled up.
You can hardly expect them to come running out and say "don't put any petrol in!" can you?

Because diesel cars are more ecomical than petrol, so you use less - so the price has to be higher to compensate.
Why do so many people have trouble figuring this out?

You're absolutely right - you're not great at maths

70% of the pump price is tax, that leaves 30% for the rest of the people who get a slice of the cash. The actual part of the price dictated by the barrel is probably only about 15% at most. So if the price of a barrel drops by 2/3rds (as in your example) then that drop in price would only be applied to 15% of the pump price (so you would only see around a 5% overall drop in the pump price).

Why is it then?

It is more expensive to refine than petrol, but not by that margin.
The government waxed lyrical about diesel for years and then, when it was mainstream, prices were pumped up.

You remember badly. It wasn't 67p or anywhere close.

So if my not so green energy rated fridge freezer is a few yrs old does that mean I should be on a more expensive tariff to somebody who has just bought an extra lean green machine?:?
If that's the case I will ask to pay more immediately

Because it does not have to be higher just because it is more economical! Yes, fair enough, there are other reasons why diesel is more expensive, but it is not because it is more economical.

How would be more economical increase the price?! Or keep it inflated?! I think your having trouble figuring that out too. Diesel hasn't just became economical, it's always been more so than petrol, in most cases. Even when it was 10p or more cheaper than petrol...

Think about it

Lets take cheese for instance. If the price of milk doubled would you expect the price of cheese to go up 100%? No, because there are things other than milk in cheese, plus the labour to make the cheese, the electricity to refrigerate the cheese, the diesel to power the truck which moves the cheese and finally the cost of labour for the guy who drives the truck and the person who stocks the shelves in your supermarket. If these remain the same then the price of cheese won't double overnight

As above, there is a fixed cost element in making and producing fuel, but it does seem to be the case that the variable cost per gallon is the biggest factor of cost, rather than transport etc, because the costs associated with fuel production are more or less driven by the amount that is produced.

It won't go anywhere near £1 gallon for at least the next 2 yrs according to my mate who is a professor in economics ., he sees petrol down to £0.80 litre within 6 weeks .The only thing that is driving oil down is the money markets themselves who are now seeing demand significantly fall back in India / China & America , when a commodity supply is no longer in huge demand the price falls like a stone so when OPEC cuts production , if they do as they too need the petrol $ , the impact will be minimal .

voted hot! awesome dude, this beats the asda deal by a whoooooooping penny a litre hahah we are easy to please, lets get this to 1000+

hi,,saw petrol at 90.9p ler litre at ashell garage in kilmarnock today

I think what he means was diesel engine is more efficient than internal combustion engine (petrol engine) such that it uses less litre of fuel per mile.
Hence even though diesel is more expensive than petrol per litre, it apparently cost less per mile.

Either that or I'm just as thermodynamically clueless. :thinking:

Thats exactly right, and the markets do not believe OPEC will stick to the cuts anyway - as they need to produce more to sell more, even if its for a lower price.

Apparently Iran loses $1 billion a year for every dollar off the price of oil!!

Yes I totally agree with you, but what I don't understand is the comment "so the price has to be higher to compensate" to compensate what? my car is more economical than a petrol is this a crime?


You should perhaps try and be nice to someone for once.....

I think it will go down to about 79.9p litre next year



Don't forget opec are to cut production soon in an attempt to hike oil prices up :x

My great uncle is a proffesor in worm farms and he thinks fuel prices will be down to 79.9 by january.

Well it was 90.9p at the Keighley store this morning....

It went from 92.9 yesterday to 90.9p as if 6.30am today...
