Petrol and Diesel Prices Fluctuation in the News?

In the News

What annoys me - is we get these reports about petrol and diesel going up and down, and it seems to me that certain petrol companies and individual garages make their own prices up?

I can go from one to another and there is a huge difference, within the same company! Something is off there.

I used to get so hung up on this as I drive a lot. I have one near work and one near home (both sainsburys) that I know are usually on the cheaper side and try not to think about it too much.

I don't get why it varies so much between neighboring towns, especially from the same company. Really annoys me!

Its all down to local competition - but still doesn't make sense . I live 10 miles north of Peterborough (which has many Supermarkets with petrol stations ) yet the prices here (in Stamford ) are always 2-3p per litre cheaper than any of the Peterborough Supermarkets and have been for years . Price fixing ?- or would a Peterborough Supermarket ( Asda , Tesco, Sainsburys , Morrisons ) care to explain ?
