"Currently Diesel costs about 107p/l whilst Unleaded petrol costs about 92p/l - 15p/litre difference! Last time U/L petrol cost 92p/l was in August 2007 and Diesel cost 94p/l - 2p/l difference! What is going on?"
"The cynic's view is that it's the government's continuing pretence at being 'green': diesel is more polluting. What is conveniently forgotten is that although it's more polluting per litre, it's less polluting per km (or so I understand it ...? ) making the prices a somewhat cynical way of obtaining more money (& I'm not even political!)"
"Why is deisel so more expensive than unleaded. It used to be the otherway round!"
"I am just wondering why it is that ALL of the stations in a given area [shell, bp, esso etc] seem to charge the same price. Do they 'conspire' with each other and fix a price so that they all get a good slice of the cake?????? If so, this must be illegal!!!"
