Set up Independent Pricing Watchdog to Stop Excessive Prices at the Fuel Pumps
background
When oil prices change, UK drivers have absolutely no idea what they will pay at the pumps. It is never ever the same! There is no consistency, logic or clarity to the way prices are calculated. If gas, electricity, water & telecoms get pricing bodies, why not motorists too? We need ‘PumpWatch’.
additional details
FairfuelUK found that on Nov 23, oil was priced £45 per barrel. In the last 2yrs, when oil hit this price on 30 different occasions, pump prices varied bizarrely from £1.35 to £1.18 for diesel and £1.26 to £1.16 for petrol. Between Oct 3rd to Nov 23rd, oil fell 31.33% from £66 to £45/barrel. But in the same period, retail profits/litre rocketed by 139% for petrol and 205% for diesel. In Oct 2018, nearly £1/2bn in wholesale fuel price falls were held back from the economy and consumers at the pumps.
