Cheap petrol today

By Steve Biddle, in , posted: 1-May-2007 08:02

Gull this morning announced a 5c reduction for 12 hours. Not to be outdone Shell have bettered this with 6c per litre off fuel for 12 hours.

Driving past several BP stations on the way to work today I notice they're not interested in offering their customers a better deal which is hardly surprising considering they're always the first to put their prices up and the last to drop them.
