As with the banks, utilities and fuel companies they continue to snub past and present governments and sadly not just Tory ones.
I get very angry when the price of oil falls but the motorists have to wait weeks to see any of the cut on the forecourt and even then it's a pittance! Yet when oil prices rise we are ladened with the increase within hours. We have a shell garage in Northampton whose prices on petrol and diesel go up and down like a yo yo but still they are high prices even with cuts. It's about time the government stepped in and stopped the oil companies profiteering from the general public and lower fuel prices to a realistic price reflecting the low oil price!
As you say, Fizzing. With the Oil co's not showing, it makes me feel they have something to hide. Market confidentiality? They must think we came up the Clyde in a banana boat. Don't make me laugh boys, and come clean.
Two weeks ago in Lithuania I was paying 76p for a litre of diesel. Work that one out! Just greed here..... Sheer greed!
As said the fuel price rises quickly enough but when the price of oil falls it takes for the price to fall this lot are just taking us for a ride
As always, profit and bonuses are at the heart of this. customer loyalty and satiisfaction is of no interest at all.
When I worked in a petrol station I was amazing at how often prices were changed, weekly sometimes several times a week. The manager would ride around the area looking at what others petrol station s prices were, then phone head office and a price was worked out over the phone. I never realised it was done that way. When I travel to my daughters ong the south coast I am amazed at the variation of prices from one place on another. Sometimes as much as 15 a litra difference. Same brands prices are different as well.
