York today Sainsburys super unleaded £1.439. £75 to fill up 52.12 ltr.
I have heard similar in the past. I also recall that the retailer makes very little per litre, which is why they all have shops, cafes etc but that may have changed in recent times.I was told an interesting story by the manager at my local Shell. Before he starts work he has to drive around the area noting the prices at competitive forecourts. When he arrives at work he dials a number and tells Shell the pricing then they tell him what price he must charge. Cartel or what!
I'm not sure it's a cartel - isn't that where prices are agreed and fixed in advance by all sellers in a given territory?Cartel or what!
