Thats a seriously good price on offer there - i have heard comments but cannot say how sound they are - - - The supermarkets apparently source petrol from ANYWHERE - i.e. not always the best stuff, whereas BP, SHELL etc etc source from a standard place...

Now im not one to start dodgy threads but i would at this point like someone from sainsbury to log in and tell us why? :?

Anyone reading this from a supermarket? Want to exaplain?

Don't forget 75% of the cash of downstream operations of petroleum firms comes from bitumen (yes, the stuff they make roads with), hence the healthy profit they make.
Price of a liter of petrol is about 12 to 14p (might be bit higher now with high crude price), so petroleum-firms have no real possibility to play a lot with the price. All the rest is the contribution of "Tony, Gordon and the Gang".

Maybe a thing to remember when voting next time...

Note: No, I don't work in the petroleum industry (although used to be a consultant there) and No, I am no member of whatever political party. I just look at the facts...
