Ripping us off? (Bill Moreland)

I’d like to ask Scottish Fuels through your paper, why is it that you can purchase petrol at 18 pence per litre cheaper in Dundee than you can at a service station here?

The price on Sunday 12th April in Dundee was 129.9p per litre. Is it that they’re only interested in ripping us off? In a captive market can they charge a much as they like?

If the price of a barrel dropped tomorrow would the price at the pump follow it? Don’t hold your breath!
