I got this back in April when I asked why they don't display prices in Munster on their app

There certainly does seem to be less competition since Topaz was sold.

There was like-for-like growth in fuel revenue of 8.4 per cent and growth in fuel gross profit of 14.3 per cent.

Yet prices haven't changed upward in quite a while. Petrol has been in the 1.35-1.45 range and diesel from 1.30-1.40. Most of them now have veritable mini-malls inside so getting customers in is what now produces the competition. That and drivers prepared to go 10km out of their way to save 1c a litre!

Petrol stations make their money in the shop not the pumps. I love how people complain about paying ~€1.40 for a litre of heavily taxed fuel and then happily pay €2 for 500ml of water or €3+ for 300ml of coffee

Circle K in Hartstown increased the price of miles+ from 149.8 yesterday to 152.8 today.

While I understand the attacks in Saudi will affect prices, there is no way the petrol being sold today has been purchased since the attacks.

Absolute joke.

In this weather ?

A bit of rain is hardly going to prevent someone driving to a different station.

Looks like we're heading back above 1.50 for petrol between the Saudi oil field attack and the government now committed to raising the carbon tax in Octobers budget

I was just about to ask the same question. Looks like it would be more than handy to people now with the increasing costs.

Crazy budget regards petrol increase , the government already takes 60% in taxes for every litre we buy.

Expect that to increase by the same amount year on year for the next 5.

It's 2¢
Not going to upset too many people.
You'd get more of a price variation shopping around.


But.. it is death by 1000 cuts.

Anyway, looks like Lithium Carbon Dioxide batteries might be the next big thing for EV's
