    Depending on turnover and location prices will vary after a drop or increase. €1.54 for petrol is very low though, where was that if you don't mind me asking?

    14 cents per litre of petrol is a massive price differential, Half Nelson.

    That's what I was thinking, but no mistake. I found the cheapest in Mayo and the dearest (so far) in several other counties.

    The dollar will be dead by the end of 2012

    Then trillions of dollars of t-bills owned by the oil-producing middle-east will develaue to nothing.


    Opec will go nuts.

    There is 100 years worth of oil in alaska & canada & under the rocky mountains. This will be opened then.

    World currency introduced at that point.
    Oh dear.

    Meanwhile, back on Planet Earth Brent futures fall to $83 a barrel while WTI futures decline to $80. Whoops!

    Petrol at my local forecourt is 148.9. Kerosene also just fell to 85.9 a ltr. Happy days.

    I got diesel this evening at 138.9 , I think petrol was around the 1.44 mark but that was a rural filling station so more competitive.

    Petrol and diesel is being stretched in the counties remotest from Dublin.

    I suspect this is because there is less monitoring by the authorities of what is going into forecourt tanks from delivery vehicles.


    It is a growing problem as substandard petrol/diesel damages car engines.

    Oh yeah I forgot thanks Enda , thanks Big Phil.

    I will be also be tanking Leo when the first Ebola case is confirmed probably on Parnell St Dublin.

    I remember early days of the big financial crisis, petrol price dropped to €1.00 at my petrol station and I was so excited by this fact that I bought a full tank making the best deal ever A week after the price of petrol dropped to €0.90
