Found for £123.99 Springburn Glasgow

Heat added. I like the picture too...

Seems pretty expensive £1199

Might take a drive down from manchester

For me a saving of less than £1 on a £65 spend isn't exactly what I'd call a HUKD!

I have just driven back from Greece via Italy,Austria, Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium and France and have to ask the questions, why is the UK the only country in Europe where diesel is more expensive than unleaded petrol and why is it that a small country like Luxembourg can sell diesel at around 90p a litre ? Welcome to rip off Britain !

And it's still £160.9 for diesel in Chelsea and £130.9 surrounding!!!

Goes well with the AMEX deal.... £10 back from £50 spend!! Nice

George Cloony has just moved in,down the road & Brad Pitt lives near too so you might catch a glimps of an A Lister filling up or buying a Jeep from the showroom there.

FYI.. Petrol is also 119.9 in/around Newcastle at the moment!

Is it me or has fuel got cheaper since we got involved with Isis? I am wondering if there is a link.... Sorry thinking out loud.

In addition to Esso being comparatively cheap, I also seem to get 80 miles more per tank from Esso than Shell.

Hot from me!

Captain Banana - totally agree about the rip off in UK. Luxembourg has a lot less fuel duty than anywhere else in EU which is why their price is so much lower.

£1.199 at the Texaco station in Forder Valley Road Plymouth yesterday

They charge more for other tax - each country collects tax in a different way. In the UK they like to tax fuel

Who pays the most tax overall?

Is it just me or is everyone crap at using decimal places?

You're all pay over a hundred pounds per liter are you?

I agree! It's £1.25 per litre (ignoring 0.1 p rounding). And it's LITRE.

Litre came up as wrong so i went with liter

bit far to travel

Another theory is to cripple/slow down the Chinese and Russian economies, particularly Russia - by reducing fuel prices, the Russians generate less revenue from Oil exports to Europe. So expect prices to fall little more over time, if as it stands, the crisis in Ukraine continues.

oil prices has dropped by 20% recently. accordingly, prices at the pump should be less than 110 per litre. Why is this not happening ?!!..... If oil prices had gone up by say 20%, prices at the pump would have increased by 30% in the same evening and the electricity/gas prices would have gone up in a matter of days !!

My x5 need 85+ litres so that will save me £3.5 as cheapest around was £1.28 for Diesel. Good saving if you are passing from that area. Won't recommend making extra journey to get the deal.

Yep been filling up here over the last 2 weeks, nice to see it open again and hopefully will stay cheap for the foreseeable

so you'd rather save £40 on some junk SSD that you would never have bought anyway if it wasn't for HUKD?

people these days smh

Same price @Esso Taplow. Long queue

Considering what's involved in getting petrol to the forecourt (drilling, extracting, refining, transport etc) and the fact that most of the cost is tax, it's actually incredible that it can be sold so cheaply.

Exactly my thoughts!

Although you're saving pennies (quite literally). It is a big deal, I still mourn those days off 0.80p diesel when I was too young to drive. The says that the "Sale" was less than "Litres" on the pump

Diesel actually costs more to produce, however most other european countries subsidise diesel through the taxation system.

It's horses for courses

In Europe I think the overall tax burden is about 35% plus or minus 5% with another 5% in the way of fines and penalties. The tax goes to pay for lots of governance, management, operational staff since about up to half of the population is deployed in such work, anything from enforcement of bounders, to telling mum how to feed a baby, to I know your child better than yourself types of government instructed help to the people, to hundreds of agents around the world monitoring everyone else at home and in the far flung corners of the planet from Arctic to the Antarctic. Moreover there are things like tax credit to subsidise workers, such that you can drink your Starbucks coffee for £1.99 as opposed to £3.99 per cup. Although you do pay a lot of taxes but you do get a lot back through these tax credited "employees" as an example.

This ALWAYS happens and we do nothing about it. Of course if the Gas and electricity companies weren't privatised and running a cartel then this probably wouldn't happen. Good old privatisation!

Crude oil prices have declined because...
- South American countries are exporting more
- West African countries are exporting more
- USA are importing less because of shale and Canadian oil sands
- Saudi lowered their prices to compete for business from Asia, especially China
