€0.79 inc vat today
(Edit) €0.78 when the truck delivered this morning so win win!
Diesel should be dropping still, Brent Crude has from $86 a barrel at it's latest peek back to $62 now.
Petrol more so than diesel has benefited from this drop and the weak € and £ have eaten up some of the drop, but still diesel should be down 10c/L, from it's peek, early next week.
Taking their sweet time passing the drop on to the consumers as usual. 135.9 in places for white now and around here it's still 141.9, robbing ..........
dropped a massive 1ppl at the pumps here this week
Diesel prices have by $200 / 100 tons on the world markets.
Even with the weak € & £ this should be giving a drop of about €0.12c / L + V.
Very few will have bought right at the top, but still should be seeing a €0.10c drop in prices. Hopefully it will continue through the spring and summer.
137.9 at the pumps tonight....
I got petrol for 137.9 in a Topaz in NewRoss today. Cheapest I've seen it anywhere.
Did you finally get a new passport ?
All will be revealed in due course jf
You took the bait
Saw that alright last night. That place is nearly always the cheapest in the town.
You must have been down for a few store bullocks....
You'd wonder how one Topaz can sell fuel so cheaply and another up the road is more expensive?. I wasn't down for cattle, tbh I didn't even know there was a mart down that way.
The proposed suspension of the sino us trade war is causing a good jump in oil prices, there should be value available for the next day or two.
Crap, I was hoping the downwards pressure would continue.
It may be short lived rise, a dead cat bounce, but a China US trade deal will increase usage but US oil production is massively increased.
So which side will win,
Trump couldn't keep his mouth shut, the oil markets have given up most of their rises, the prices have settled down for the moment, well at least till the next time mouth almighty has to sound off.
Oil prices dropping significantly again, the markets very worried we are going into a major recession, between Trump trade wars and Brexit no deal.
There definitely seems to be a vibe going around of a global economic slowdown. I wonder what will happen, I’m no expert but find it very interesting.
Europe doesn’t need any economic hardship with the precarious economic situation in Italy and the social unrest in France.
Saw a 50ac block of what I thought was very good land in East Cork sell for under 8k/ac recently. Looked like a steal to me unless I’m missing something.
It’ll be hard for the eu to raise interest rates if economic growth is poor.
Got diesel last Friday, .78c all in.
Got diesel last Friday for .61 plus vat, recently changed supplier. We had been dealing with the same crowd for the last 35 years and never really priced around. Did on the last two fills and the new supplier was 4c a litre cheaper both times . My old supplier knew I had moved and told me they would be more competitive next fill but not to be .
I’m in a similar situation, only one company and same driver coming in my lifetime, they have always been a bit dearer but provide a good service but the last couple of times I’ve asked my friends they are paying 5c less at times, I’m going having the chat when they call around before Christmas.
I was worried about quality but the driver who used to always deliver to us listed out suppliers that got there diesel from the same place as them so that reassured me . My uncle who runs 6 trucks also changed from them after a lifetime of dealing . I feel
a little sorry for the driver as he always got diesel to us as quick as he could and filled us on a Saturday which helped his pay bonus instead of running on kero runs to bring up his litre bonus
Same supplier coming here since the company was founded back in my grandfathers time. They tend to be a cent or 2 more then others at times but we've always rated their fuel very highly and very prompt service. I'm going to say 60 years at this stage.
Often wondered what way the drivers pay worked as they generally have their own customers, I won’t be rushing out the door as he even comes on Sundays during the harvest to fill the combine when needed, but I don’t need to explain to you that it all adds up and at some point you have to do something either way.
