Petrol Prices in Lewes

Are being conned? for some time now petrol is 129 in Brighton and Uckfield, even the ever expensive Texaco on A27 is 133. Yet Esso and Tesco hold us to ransom at 133. And has anyone noticed that the Esso dial whizzess around before any of that expensive juice emerges?

It's not in their interest to start a price war so they don't. If everyone went to Asda then our price would tumble. But we don't so they won't...

Even little country garages in West Wales were charging 131.9 for unleaded last week. When the prices went up a few months back, the differential between Lewes & Eastbourne did drop for a while from the 3-4p per litre it has been for the last few years, but they are now back having as big a laugh at us as ever.
But then we keep buying from them, so why shouldn't they? The lttle garage in Ringmer is outcompeting them at the moment - why doesn't everyone use that, to teach them a lesson? If we can't be bothered, only ourselves to blame.

On my travels last night I notice that the BP station at Willingdon was 128.9 for unleaded. That's the cheapest I've seen for a while. The little independent filling station at Selmeston was 129.9.
