Petrol prices ... yes petrol
« on: June 09, 2022, 08:05:00 PM »

What’s happened to the price of petrol. Diesel here today 185.8ppl.  BUT petrol is now 182.9ppl.
Last week they were well over 10p apart. Have I missed something.

It's to do with air pressure and whether the tide is coming in or going out  :stars

Something needs to be done about the retailing profiteers.
They put up the price the microsecond Brent oil goes up and then take weeks to cut the price (we never saw the 5p drop in duty here) when the market price of oil goes down  :shakeinghead

Nothing we can do about it apart from moan  >:(

It's about £1.82 or so here the last time I looked and I'm not too far from the New Forest. It's simply ripoff Britain alive and well.

I drove down from Scotland yesterday and the variations in diesel prices were staggering. A Tesco near the border was selling diesel at £1.79, then just down the road, another station selling at £2.04. The same seemed to be happening all the way down. Even motorway services don't appear to be such a comparative rip off at the moment. That's really scary. Who reckons they will ever come down again to a realistic price... Not me I'm afraid...

Petrol will be £2.50 per litre by the end of the summer. £2.00 per litre  is roughly the point I had in mind that would trigger my change from petrol to Electric when I replace my daily drive.

Its a slippery slope , the price isn't so much of a threat to older cars , the more people who make the swap to EV the less fuel gets used , the less of a profit is made and so on.

I walked to the pub past the Shell station, £1.839 for unleaded£1.899 diesel. Walked back a couple of hours later, petrol£1.859. diesel £1.919. I dread to think what E5 is.
Ripoff Britain is really thriving, it's nothing to do with Ukraine or anything else, it's racketeering.!

If you watch Nigel Farage on GB news this is his bug bear.  The result of his investigations had been the run down of refining in the UK to meet the Green agenda, as we all know this just moves the pollution elsewhere, in this case Russia. So if you want to get to grips with the current situation, write to your MP about the Green levy and get it removed/reduced asap.

I swore I'd give up driving when petrol was going over £1 a gallon - I had said the same when petrol went over 50p a gallon - guess I didn't stick to that ...

 Hi Guys

  We are up to $2.36  (Canadian) per litre for regular.
 My 69 Dormobile restoration with the 2.6L 6 cylinder with the Weslake head calls for Premium petrol $2.55 per litre  :'(

  Think I'm going to go out to the garage later today and dust off the old Shwin.

So if you want to get to grips with the current situation, write to your MP about the Green levy and get it removed/reduced asap.

One minor flaw in Mr Farage's story is that the UK is not short of refined petrol. The UK is actually exporting 3 million litres a month to the USA at the moment, more goes elsewhere. In 2020 for example we exported 24m Tonnes of petroleum products to Holland. Another slight flaw in his tale is that UK refining capacity has been static since 2015, actually increased slightly in 2020.

A point to remember is that oil products are traded in US $.  Related to Mr Farage, an event happened in Jun 2016 that saw the GB £ drop from around £1 = $1.45 to $1.33. It has never reached $1.45 since. Today its at $1.25.  A barrel of Brent Crude today is at $1.22 so roughly £100. Were the GB £ still at its 2016 value that oil would be only £84. Perhaps ask Mr Farage what happened on 23rd Jun 2016 to so depress the value of our currency ?
