For the first time in about 7 years all the (3) petrol Stations in town are the same (Expensive ) Price @£139.9 plus Morrison,s and Tesco are the same price in Dumfries and Stranraer @£138.9, none have taken the Chancellors 1p off as yet, Funny how they all bought Fuel at the higher price so are unable to reduce it by the 1p as per Budget, but I bet it will go up if a Duck Fart,s, Robbin Baskets.

NB. prices are for Diesel.

Helloooooo?

It's an utter irrelevance.

 

When will people finally learn?

 

Almost 90% of the pump price in the UK is tax. Tax. Not oil Company profit. Not even Oil Company revenue. Just Tax.

In reality the pump price has nothing to do with the oil Companies, who risk their shareholders money every day to search for, discover, extract, transport, refine, stock and sell road fuel.

 

BP made 7% Return-On-Capital-Employed last year. That's pathetically little. And then they pay Corporation Tax on that too!

 

Petrol stations usually actually make more profit from their shops than they do from their cut of the sales price of petrol and diesel.

 

Oil Companies are NOT robbing barons, so stop swallowing the spin that Governments put out; it is GOVERNMENT which sets 90% of the price of the product, and takes 90% of your money when you buy it.
