Fuel prices MEGATHREAD


Recommended Posts

If anyones interested, I've added a link in my profile for an organisation called the Pipeline Card. Here's the blurb from the website -

 

Save money on petrol & diesel with a free Pipeline Card!

All those involved in the oil business are getting their cut from the inflated prices we're paying on the forecourts - the oil-well owners, refineries and filling stations. In February of this year Shell announced record annual profits of $25.36 BILLION. On top of that the government siphons off nearly 70% of the price you pay in tax.

 

These organisations behave as if petrol and diesel are luxury goods, and driving is a hobby. We are not 'motorists' as the media like to call us. We are teachers, nurses, workers and parents! WE DRIVE BECAUSE WE HAVE TO - NOT BECAUSE WE WANT TO!

 

There are nearly 32 million of us in the UK. If a large number of us stand together and chose to give all our custom to one major forecourt chain, we could negotiate a substantial discount for ourselves. PIPELINE CARD was established to achieve that and we already have over 500,000 supporters. It's a great start but we have learnt, to our cost, that it's not enough to make them budge. So we need more members...

 

It costs absolutely nothing to join, but by joining Pipeline Card today you strengthen our clout as well as making yourself eligible to buy fuel at a discount. By telling other drivers about this website you can make that happen sooner - and do them a favour into the bargain.

 

It may work, it may not, but the way Petrol Prices are rising, it has to be worth a shot.

So, did the government just put 10p per litre on fuel this week? Or was it the oil companies hiking the price because a few blokes in Scotland are threatening to go on strike to protect their pensions? Profiteering... I think so.

 

You'll find that's probably down to the petrol retailers. A Shell petrol station sells Shell fuel - its not necessarily owned by Shell but a franchise.

 

Just like in the fuel protests in Bolton where one retailer in Blackpool put petrol up to £1 a litre, one in Bolton put up a sign saying "petrol available for Asians only".

 

Shop around, petrol is still cheap at the major supermarkets. Sainsburys and Morrisons are selling unleaded for 105.9p

I signed up for the Pipeline card over a year ago and all I have had from them are excuses for it not appearing and offers to sell me totally unrelated items instead.

This statement above is true. I think that is the most annoying thing about the price of fuel. 106p is cheap.......
