    So Asda & Sainsburys make cuts of 2p/litre. Tesco Up to 2p/litre.

    As usual Tesco are determined to be the most expensive but I'm sure they'll try and convince people otherwise

    Tesco are cheapest for unleaded in my area at 118.9. Morrisons are a penny more.

    Both are 120.9 for diesel.

    Again?:rotfl:

    Seriously, when the price of petrol goes up the media talk about the huge costs going up for poor hit working families.

    Then when the prices goes down, they describe it as "supermarket price war"

    What a loada rubbish:p

    It depends on the price of oil, not on the supermarkets.

    Getting rather tired of how these types of stories are presented. Anyone agree?;)

    Why not cut diesel by the same amount as petrol??? That annoys me, even though I don't pay for my own fuel!

    The isn't as much refining capacity for diesel as there is for petrol. The demand for diesel has risen as more and more people buy diesel cars.
