I really must grab a picture of the old Jet station on The Dublin Road in Dundalk. The price is barely legible but around 57ish pence ?

Don't trouble yourself, with the wonder of google maps http://g.co/maps/5cv5z

Was about 85c/litre when I started driving. Give it a few weeks and that will have doubled!
