    Managed it last week at Morrisons.

    I recently spent £40 in Morrison's and got 7p off per litre and also paid 99.9 (for Diesel).

    Hope it will fall down some more (although the Duty, VAT and other factors will stop it falling too far).
    It's not your credit score that counts, it's your credit history. Any replies are my own personal opinion and not a representation of my employer.

    The local Sainsburys has joined the game, at 99.9p.
    I can get 3% cashback by using the Santander 123 MasterCard, plus a few Nectar points. No dice.

    Tried my luck with Morrisons again, and it's 99.9p, but 5% cashback by using the TSB Contactless. So, 94.9p!

    Life's simple pleasures. If I won the Lotto on Wednesday, will I still enjoy this? Sigh.

    Most forecourts round here are around 106p. Yesterday the Asda forecourts entrance was blocked off due to too many customers queuing. The BP opposite was therefore still in business at 103p.

    It's difficult to understand why MSE has picked out 2 supermarkets, when all prices are dropping, including other supermarkets.

    My local Tesco is now 99.9p , a new age dawns.

    Expecting a drop in domestic gas and electricity next month.

    My local Sainsbury's has just put the price up to 100.9p again. So much for the price drop.

    Their diesel was also rather more expensive than the Esso next door, who only charged me 101.9p.
    If it sticks, force it.
    If it breaks, well it wasn't working right anyway.
