Why is there such a disparity in petrol prices? are we being ripped off?
Closed

Where I live there are 3 petrol stations within a mile of each other selling unleaded petrol at different prices, Esso £161.9p. Morrisons £154.9p. and Tesco £153.9p. however I had a run out to a retail park near York which is 40 miles away and came across Asda selling unleaded petrol at £145.7p and Sainsburys at £142.9p. So the difference between the highest and the lowest is 19p per litre which equates to roughly 66p per gallon more at Esso, this is scandalous and needless to say I don't buy my petrol from there. And how is it that there is such a price difference between supermarkets? so much for every little helps!!!!!

My brother lives opposite a petrol station. One day last week it was 10p dearer in the evening than it had been that morning when he set off for work. Yes, they’d had a fresh delivery that day.
The prices are so volatile at the moment that nothing surprises me.

Dependant on the date of the last delivery, and the supermarkets are also usually cheaper, they want you in through the door of the supermarket, plus I'm betting their costs of running the stations is cheaper

I guess it depends if they are using old stock or have had a recent delivery at higher prices…

Because a)it's how markets work, and b) smaller petrol stations have higher overheads than big supermarket sites, therefore their prices differ to take account of the higher delivery costs

Part of the problem is when they last had a delivery and what wholesale price was in force on the day !
