Petrol prices in Carlisle on roller coaster ride
30th May 2010
... Comments

I read on the News & Star website the other day that huge discrepancies are opening up between petrol stations across the region.

Cars are like computers – whether you love them or hate them, getting by without them is an uphill struggle with a steep gradient. The supermarkets have the benefit of being able to soak up any losses caused by selling petrol cheaply by upping the price of groceries. But the privately operated stations don’t necessarily have this kind of fallback.

So what to do?

Do you purchase from the privately owned petrol stations and supermarkets and support local businesses?

Or do you hit the supermarket and its affiliated petrol station knowing full well that any reduction is being compensated through your shopping bill?

Over to you for your comments.........
