Petrol price shambles (Jim Moran)
What (again) is happening to the price of petrol in Shetland?
Last week the price of petrol at Sound Service Station dropped to £1.41 per litre. I thought they might have introduced the 5p derogation early as it dropped from £1.46.
Driving in to work yesterday it had gone up again to £1.44 per litre for unleaded.
What (if anything) are our representatives in Edinburgh and the House of Commons doing about the monopoly here in Shetland which seems to charge whatever it likes for fuel, petrol, diesel and heating oil.
I am fed up of hearing that Tavish Scott and Alistair Carmichael are raising the issue with the Office of Fair Trading yet nothing seems to be done.
Does the manager of the company who supplies our fuel in Shetland go by the name of Dick Turpin by any chance?
Great news to hear that the Tagon Shop in Voe is to introduce mainland prices for one day per month for their fuel. Beware of the impending traffic jam on those days!
