    All fuel is getting cheaper.

    Why does the thread title mention only Asda?

    I think it is because Asda set the price across all of its petrol stations. In this latest cut it is to 103.7 (I think). Whereas, for example, Tesco don't set a blanket price.

    Crude oil prices plummet by nearly 57% and the best Asda can offer us is a measly 18% overall reduction....?
    And they still have regional / store-to-store variation!

    What about all the food prices they "had to put up due to rising fuel costs" a few years back? When are we going to see them come back down again? Remember when bread was usually less than £1 per loaf? We all do cos it wasn't that long ago.... Some brands are pushing through the £1.50 barrier now and it was all APPARENTLY due to fuel prices....

    Once again we've been ripped off!

    Fair play to Asda for leading the way on the forecourt but they should all be doing so much more....

    I have 10p a litre off in Tesco, so thought I'd check out their prices today.

    £1.07 a litre here in Stowmarket, but only £1.05 in Ipswich, about 8 or 10 miles down the road !!!

    This is on the same day they send me an E:Mail telling me how they will "price match" against Morrisons, Sainsburys, Asda etc, yet they can't even match their own Petrol prices !!!!!

    Because they can't suddenly grow acres of say potatoes to take in to account the decrease in cost of fuel that's built in to the cost and contracts they already have

    The same goes for their transport costs, contracts are in place, until they are renewed, they cant reduce the cost

    When you open your eyes. Prices are changing all the time, some downwards.

    I remember quite well the last loaf of bread bought for £1. I had a sandwich yesterday afternoon, and the rest is still in the bread bin.

    75p a loaf from the co-op and they are the dearest shop around. Get your self to lidl, it costs f ck all, if only they did petrol....

    Actually the price of bread in real terms has been coming down since the repeal of the corn laws in the 19th century. Free trade all the way, now is there a charters march I can go on today......

    You do know that fuel price is made up of product selling price, retailer profit (5p) a static tax charge (57.95p), and VAT at 20%?

    So when unleaded was at 132.9p per litre, the product was 47.8p, retailer profit 5p, 57.95p static tax, and 22.15p VAT.

    At 104p per litre, the product costs 24p per litre, 57.95p static tax, 5p retailer profit, and 17.4p vat.

    I'll leave you to work out the percentage difference between 47.8p and 24p.

    And why shouldnt they have regional variation? They are a business you know.

    Oh and can you show us exactly where the rising price of bread was put down SOLELY to fuel prices?

    So in terms of "so much more", what else should they be doing?
    Life has never given me lemons.

    It has given me anger issues, anxiety, a love for alcohol and a serious dislike for stupid people, but not lemons.
