UK fuel price news.
Quote:
Diesel is now cheaper than petrol for the first time in 15 years

Supermarkets have dropped the diesel price by up to 2p per litre

Harriet Line
Monday, 20 July 2015

Supermarkets have slashed the price of diesel, making the fuel cheaper than petrol for the first time in 15 years.

Tesco, Morrisons and Asda have dropped the price of diesel by up to two pence per litre just days after the AA said that fuel retailers had been "plundering ordinary diesel car drivers to the tune of 4p to 6p a litre" since April.

Asda said drivers will now pay no more than 112.7 pence per litre (ppl) across its 272 filling stations, while unleaded remains at 114.7ppl.

Tesco will implement the lower prices at 1pm this afternoon, while the price change will come into effect at Asda tomorrow.

But a "handful" of Morrisons fuel stations will sell diesel at a higher price than unleaded because of "local competitive factors".

Andy Peake, Asda's senior director for petrol, said: "Asda cutting another 2ppl on diesel is great news for our drivers, meaning they will pay no more than 112.7ppl at any Asda forecourt. Every single one of our customers knows the maximum price they will pay at the pump regardless of where they live."...

The diesel vs gasoline price difference is also quite high in the Netherlands. Usually gasoline is about € 0.30 per liter more expensive, but currently the difference is more like € 0.37.

The UK is somewhat different from the rest of western Europe, where gasoline is usually substantially more expensive than diesel.

Here in France diesel is cheaper than gasoline only because our previous governments decided that with diesel we burn less quantities so it's kind of "greener"... a choice that we now see as a mistake because the particles coming from diesel cars (most of the cars in France) is public safety issue as it as a very very big impact on health (more pulmonary problems like asthma or cancer...).

So now we are doing the opposite : now taxes on diesel car are becoming higher (less differences with gasoline) and our government has clearly said that diesel has no reason to be used as much as we did in the past...

A discount fuel station along N315 near Borculo in the Netherlands. The red figures indicate the discount (in cents).

This fuel station is not particularly cheap, I refueled for € 1.599 per liter at another Tango later. Some also offer diesel around € 1.15 per liter.

Gasoline: € 1.629/l = $ 6.775/gal
Diesel: € 1.229/l = $ 5.110/gal

It's been a long time since there was € 0.40 per liter difference between gasoline and diesel.

Current prices here in South Germany, in the evening:

Diesel - 1.109 Euro/liter ($ 4.66/gallon)
Gas, 95 Octane - 1.399 to 1.419 Euro/liter ($ 5.88 to 5.97/gallon)
Gas, 98 Octane - 1.459 Euro/liter ($ 6.13/gallon)

Gas was slightly cheaper end of last week, Diesel is on the cheap side right now. Difference between both is normally around 20-25 cents, currently around 30.

BUMP.

US crude oil is at near a 6.5 year low, yet gas prices here in Seattle are still above $3/gallon in many spots. Eh, what gives?

The "excuse" before was because of an oil refinery fire in California in February but that was a while ago.

crude oil is not gasoline

oil company still makin' money!

Worse, Montreal Canada is at $1.269/litre. When oil was 147$/bbl in 2008 it was $1.499 and when oil was $100 it was 99 cents. Now oil is $40 and gas nearly $1.27

Here in Cedar Rapids Iowa our unleaded plus/regular a 10% ethanol blend is from $2.32 - $2.59 a gallon..that is the fuel most people use in Iowa.

Yet when the oil price goes up, gas prices automatically skyrocket! Funny how that works?

"Still making" ?

Oil companies are ALWAYS making a freaking huge amount of MONEY whatever is the price of crude oil! (Evn if the lowest it is, the best it is for them...).


BTW how can we let a thing that is that much important for us to companies like that, the gestion of oil should be given to countries (so to citizen) so they could run it smartly...

no that would be even worse, the government takes all the money out of the oil companies, and the production methods are done badly / damage the field, damage environment, and end up so corrupt the people end up worse... (just look at PEMEX or Petrobras or any of the others, or the French experience of Elf, LOL)

Maybe I'm too optimistic, but I could hardly imagine how it could be worse than how it is right now, especially what you do in Canada with oil sands, surely the worse way to extract oil on the entire earth...

You're right about Elf, but I think that this is the same with private corporations, there is always a big link with governments and politics with lots of corruption... maybe it's just more hidden now...

I saw € 1.489 per liter for E95 yesterday, which is very cheap by Dutch standards (17 cents discount)

It has been reported nearly half of all fuel stations in the Netherlands are now unattended, i.e. with a payment terminal only.

There is a bifurcation, automated fuel stations with discount (usually € 0.10 - 0.12 per liter) and full service stations with car wash and shop with fresh bakery products. Full service stations charge more per liter, but nearly all of their profit comes from the shop sales. The fuel stations in between are declining.

I don't recall ever seeing an automated fuel station in Germany. Are they not allowed to sell fuel without an attendant?

Most Dutch go to Belgium for petrol, not for diesel. Diesel cars are much less popular in the Netherlands than in Belgium (only about 15% drive on diesel) and most of those are company cars with a fuel card, so they don't have a huge incentive to travel 25 km to Belgium and back to refuel at € 0.10 discount.

The diesel price difference between NL and BE is not that big (€ 0.07). The petrol price difference is bigger (about € 0.20).
