AA says fuel should be cheaper ...



Despite wholesale prices for fuel plummeting recently drivers are yet to see any large drops at the pumps, the AA has revealed. However experts are predicting that a price war is on the horizon and drivers can expect much lower prices.

Supermarkets have already started slashing prices with Asda charging 109.9p a litre for unleaded and 121.9p for diesel at its 171 forecourts. Morrisons had already knocked 2p a litre off diesel and unleaded and Tesco has pledged to match the lowest pump prices 'almost immediately'.

The AA has welcomed the reductions but accused some forecourts of not dropping prices in line with falling crude costs. Oil has dropped to around 115 dollars a barrel from its record high above 147 dollars last month.

AA spokesman Paul Watters said some regions were not getting cheap enough fuel. 'Cheapest prices in many southern towns are still two or three pence above what drivers are paying in areas where competitive supermarkets are engaged in a dogfight,' he said. 'Since the all-time high of 119.7 pence per litre for petrol and 133.25 for diesel, the wholesale price for petrol coming into the UK has fallen 18% and 22% for diesel. This has yet to be reflected in average UK prices.'

Well, I hope its only still high as they are still using stocks that where bought at the higher price.

Now oil has dropped - fingers crossed the price will drop over the next few weeks also.

Seems the price hike was all down to speculation - who ever started it all has made the oil companys a lot of money....

I saw it was 1.12 the other day and nearly came. It's been horrible with the high prices! Can't wait for sub-1 prices.

I remember when fuel was around the 40p mark - 20 used to fill my Fiesta raftl

Thing is with the price, and as Craig said, we have got used to it being so high now - when the prices go up, oil companys are very quick to raise the price, not so quick to lower it though.... think

...also think of the lost TAX - its a % of the price per litre, so the lower the price, the less % of TAX you pay...

I wonder if its actually a test, the oil companies raising the price as high as they can go, before motorists stop buying fuel. Even though everyone complained about the price, about 2 people in Britain did anything aout it.

The companies get that little bit extra, and also know how much they can raise it to in the future
