No sign of any supply problems up here now, but prices are about 4p/litre higher than they were before it all kicked off.

Shell in Dundee is now 141.9p for diesel, and 143.9p in St Andrews. Is that good or bad nationally for branded fuel?

Paid £1.33 at Sainsbury's on Tuesday when I filled up last.

Down here the larger supermarkets seem ok, it's the smaller ones that are mainly closed.

Diesel, but I noticed at the local Asda it was nearer £1.40 today. :sad:

Was offered a drum of diesel by a couple of couple of colourfully dressed Irish gentlemen this week.
Guessing it came in a lovely shade of red, or was watered down. No thank you.

Use to have a regular punter who I took down there twice a year.

The most awkward place in Wales to get to.

But the money was good. :D

Diesel, but I noticed at the local Asda it was nearer £1.40 today. :sad:

Asda Dundee close to the main through route to Aberdeen was 133.7 yesterday. BP a bit further up the road was 140.9, and Shell in the city centre was 144.9, I think.

I usually go to that Shell garage because it's convenient if I'm in Dundee, and is usually on the cheap side for branded fuel, but it seems comparatively dearer than normal, in fact the same as Shell St Andrews, which is usually a few pence dearer.

I think supermarket fuel is typically 6-8p cheaper around these parts, and think Asda generally a penny or two cheaper than Tesco.

Don't know why Asda seem to use .7p increments, though. But I suppose it's just a trick like the .9p increments to make it look slightly cheaper than it is :?
