Title: Diesel, petrol, oil price watch
Post by: Dire Ear on March 08, 2022, 10:00:40 AM
Just an idea for cheaper options throughout the country.
I'll start by asking for diesel in Tyrone?

Couldn't agree more (if you have a fire / back boiler). 200kg coal approx £79. Half a tonne of logs too. Keep the boiler off

Genuine possibility for ‘rationing’ of fuel over the next few months. Dependent on what happens in Ukraine the taps could start running dry. That’s a scary but potentially real scenario

May keep working from home. They reckon 40% of the supply.

Also I think places are taking the piss and it should be remembered.

“Given Russia’s key role in global energy supply, the global economy could soon be faced with one of the largest energy supply shocks ever,” Damien Courvalin, head of energy research at Goldman Sachs, said in a note to clients. “The uncertainty on how this conflict and oil shortages will be resolved is unprecedented.” Brent crude rose 7.6 per cent to almost $132 a barrel on Tuesday after a White House official said that Joe Biden, US president, was set to announce a ban on imports of Russian oil into the country. The international oil benchmark had climbed as high as $139 a day earlier.

It needs to be capped rather than a discount of 15c/20c.

Prices have declined by 10% since their peak in the middle of last week. Hard to know what way it will go, the only saving grace is that heating oil will be in less demand in a month or two.

The waiting lists are on a lot of brands.

I had to trade in last summer as my old car developed a few issues which, unless you're a mechanic yourself, cost more to fix than the car was worth.

Luckily our dealer had a new car we liked enough to buy straight away (Subaru Outback XT), but had we not taken that colour/options, you were looking at three weeks for the next delivery. Apparently its months now and gouged-up prices at some dealers.

Makes diddly squat of a difference to the car engine, its just a dye in the diesel. The benefits that used to be there (low cost) is not there anymore however. Considering its in the region of £500 (first offence NI) or 1500 euro (first offence roi) if you are dipped you need to make the decision is it enough of a risk to take. I know a lad who drove on it for years before he started getting company cars and he saved himself a clean fortune in the long run.

70l tank white currently approx £1.8p/l - 126 quid fill
same red fill approx £1.40 p/l - £98 quid fill.

is a saving of 28 quid a fill enough to make you drive on the red? I would suggest its a pain in the cahoneys checking out from fbook where the dippers are and if reports are even correct.

Surely the difference in price between red and clear is the additional taxes on clear. So the saving would be the same now as it was 2 years ago?

I’ve never been dipped in 20 years of driving. Think maybe once I’ve been through a checkpoint as a passenger and even then was waved through. I’d say long term the risk would be worth it especially if you’re commuting on motorway.

I’ve never been dipped in 20 years of driving. Think maybe once I’ve been through a checkpoint as a passenger and even then was waved through. I’d say long term the risk would be worth it especially if you’re commuting on motorway.

When I was a kid, we kept a tank of red/green for the tractor, but my parents never used it for the car in the five years we had a diesel (good sturdy 504 which my father ruined drawing cattle). Don't remember them or anyone else commenting on being dipped, despite my mother having a 50 mile round trip to work, but I guess it must have been around. Perhaps they didn't want to take the risk as the local guards would know the cars that belonged to farmers.

Would border counties not be more susceptible to dipping? A manager of mine from about a dozen years ago got dipped near Newry and turns out the cheap diesel she was getting was that cheap for a reason.

Can the authorities tell from dipping if the diesel is laundered?

Not that I'd recommend using laundered diesel in your engine with the chemical treatments they put it through to remove the dye.

Thats a fact. Best diesel you can buy as you know it hasn't been tampered with. Red fuel will disappear after changing fuel filter and filling her up with the clear stuff.

P.S. I now drive a petrol car ;)

Ah, now I see what you mean.

In that case I'd keep the receipt handy to show the guards and let the tank run down till the light is on a while before filling it up.

I actually sold my car (verbally) and got £1500 more than the trade in price but when the search begun to replace it that's when the fun started. Prices are 25% more than they should be and after speaking to two sperate guys this morning who deal in cars they convinced me to hold onto my car for another 6 months as they see a huge drop in prices coming due to drop in demand due to less coin about and also too many garages now have cars in their forecourt 90 & 120 days not shifting with negative figures on them and they're gonna have to sell them. He said the first car garage to drop their prices to get rid of their stock the rest will follow.

The higher the fuel goes up the more money the government make and the more money the share holders of BP and so on will keep this going.. Its getting to the point where nearly every time I'm in the car I'm wondering do I have to?

To the layman out there there appears to be a misconception that the price of oil/petrol/diesel etc. is completely driven by the suppliers.  Is it not something like only 39% of the price of a litre that is linked to the actual supplier price, with the other 60% odd percent within the control of the government?

That's correct (not sure of the exact %, but I'd say that's in the ballpark).

But also to remember that it's part of the whole suite of taxes that are collected and used. While energy tax receipts will have gone up, it's a case of "the polluter pays" and it increases the exchequer surplus or reduces the deficit for the year.

Governments don't want to reduce tax on petrol, because if/when prices go back to normal (whatever that is), they'd be left with a hole that would need to be filled by extra taxes on something else. There's definitely a case though that there should be some price ceiling above which normal excise does not apply.

With diesel currently at £2.019 per litre at the nearest reputable filling station and with me being able to claim 45p per mile for business, I need to be to able to claim for at least 40.7% of my monthly mileage before it starts costing me. I am assuming a conservative 50mpg.

I hope to update this on a regular basis.

I know that and also the Gov knows their 5p reduction was a token gesture as when the costs went up multiples of that their tax take also went up considerably.

I have to change the car for a few reasons and was actually thinking would electric be an option. We’re a 2 car family, and would keep a larger diesel 7 seater for all family trips, holidays etc. but is an electric car an option now? We both work at home but with some travel for work. Would generally be doing school runs and short journeys during the week with maybe one trip to Belfast (150 odd miles round  trip) a week and the odd other trip at 150 miles tops.
Was thinking anything within range could be picked up by the electric car. Would be some saving given we could rack up 4-500 diesel a month costs. Anyone much experience with all electric?

Wasn't there fuel protests in 2000 (in England anyway) when a litre was heading towards the £1 mark and because of the protests it came down again?
If people don't protest it will be £2.50 before you know it.

Its 52.9p a litre in fuel duty and VAT is 20% so about 80p in a litre goes to the government over here. Duty was cut by 5p a litre but they've made it with the extra their making on the VAT. This time last year they were probably making 20p a litre on VAT but now its about 30p.

2 cars as well, I'd say our fuel bill this month will be approx £350 and that's us both working from home 2 days a week. the best of it is I haven't even went any further than Cookstown or Dungannon in that time. All the trips for the kids school runs, training, matches and discos don't be long adding up. 
So therefore also thinking of electric as my next car.

I know there’s an obvious cost in charging but I was less to believe on the right tariff it’s minimal enough in comparison. I honestly believe if we got electric we could take £300 a month off. (Depending on cost of charging) Wouldn’t be that long adding up to cover the extra cost of the car.

Oil is priced in dollars, if you watch Drici's thread the dollar is up against £ and € partly because of these events.
Petrol has gone up over the summer because the Americans do a lot of driving around then, which is why diesel has not gone up so much.
However, oil has fallen a bit in the last day or so, we should see this show up.

Sure is the price of a barrel of oil not away down this past few weeks?
has not gone

Oil is priced in dollars, if you watch Drici's thread the dollar is up against £ and € partly because of these events.
Petrol has gone up over the summer because the Americans do a lot of driving around then, which is why diesel has not gone up so much.
However, oil has fallen a bit in the last day or so, we should see this show up.

diesel has not gone up so much??????

In April, diesel was more expensive than petrol in the 26 counties, now it is cheaper again.

If you bought the list above and the buns it would be over £20  :o

That list + 40 litres of fuel would cost £100 now. 12 months ago it would have been less than £65.

At work last year they took a savage hard line on overheads and expenditure, planning to save 20% or whatever, cue a good amount of innovative saving ideas and also a lot of downright fakery to try and meet the target

Anyway so I took the opportunity to review my own budgeting and really drill down into where I was spending my money

Has been a real win win for me, instead of spending erratically I'm a lot more in tune with what I need and what I'm getting for my money, this has allowed me to really commit to a decent overpayment on my mortgage which I was already doing

Anyone forecasting a tightening of the belt going forward I'd fully recommend a full review of your ins and outs while still trying to leave a bit of room for leisure expenses etc as best you can

You can’t actually buy mustard in France atm, or at best it’s one jar per customer . Was told it was something to do with failure of the Canadian mustard seed crop. Mad that there’s no word of that here.

You'd need a loan to shop in Mullan's Spar in Armagh. Mad prices.

I can't get my missus talked into shopping outside of Sainsburys or buying own brand as she has this very old fashioned "yellow pack" view that they can't possibly be as good despite me telling her that in a lot of instances it's the same stuff from the same factory!

Anyways, if I get a break in the day on a Friday I tend to nip out and do the usual weekend shop..

Wasn't too bad and stayed with the clubcard priced items, fresh veg, chicken, mince beef, sausages, steak (for me tonight as she's out) wine (5 bottles) beer, sodas pancakes, couple of the street food recipes (which are great and handy) some passata and some crisps and biscuits and chocolate..

The only way to get inflation down and put a bit of smacht on it is to raise interest rates until inflation collapses. That is not good for house prices.
There is going to be a pretty big recession next year, linked to interest rates.

Yeah, you'd think if interest rates go up a few %, it would create a lot of problems for people.

House prices could stall which, in itself, wouldn't be a bad thing. It has to stop somewhere. I think up on average 11% from this time last year.

There’ll be  no revolution . People are too busy watching  Love Island and  Netflix

Revolt against what and who? Governments? Sure they have no control over anything anymore. They are just administrators horsing out printed money.

Still no one answered  the rapid rise in heating oil in a week. Know there was talk of repairs to a gas line to Germany,  worried the Russians  wouldn't turn it on again. Price Diesel jumped 10p in a week too.

VAT is the latest one doing the rounds.

Truss is considering a VAT cut to 15%.

'cos electric, heating, oil milk and bread all have the full VAT rate on them. Oh. wait a minute.

So, who is a VAT cut going to benefit the most?

Truss is either an imbecile, or cruel.

I think everyone in the country had the same idea, wait for a drop in prices (and prices were dropping a bit as the $ conversion rate was dropping too, but the $ has strengthened again) then mid august people starting ordering heating oil to beat the Autumn / Winter rush and there's serious local demand. But mainly it's a f**king racket, price of coal has doubled too, no shortage of that AFAIK, coal we were buying locally was Columbian.

Pound in biggest monthly fall against the dollar since 2016

Quote
Worries over the prospects for the UK economy led the pound to slide by about 5% against the US dollar in August.

The last time the pound fell so much against the dollar was in October 2016, in the aftermath of the Brexit vote.

Sterling sank again on Thursday morning, dipping below $1.16 on the currency markets.

Analysts said the fall reflects the darkening outlook for the economy, with consumers and businesses facing rising prices and soaring energy bills.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-62750606

Looking at XE.com for Euro & Sterling to US Dollar, back at the 10th August US$1.00 = £1.22 & €1.03. Today it's US$1.00 = £1.15 & €0.99

You need to factor in the exchange rate between the dollar and the pound.

The pound has been dropping like a rock lately due to the poor forecast of the UK economy and because oil is traded in Dollars it is making it more expensive for the UK to buy.

Of course this has noting to do with Brexit  ::)

There is but without Brexit prices would be about 2% lower.

Petrol seems to be up to 20c cheaper than diesel these days.
It used to be always around 10c dearer.
I'm confused!

In the Freestate the duty was reduced more on petrol than diesel, but there are also seasonal variations. Diesel was cheaper than petrol in the summer, but in winter people do less driving but burn more diesel.

Drove past a Texaco this morning that was £1.84 for diesel. We have been ripped off for months surely.

The biggest myth ever is that fuel stations only make 'a couple of pence' of profit per litre.

Promotional deal for thanksgiving. A place outside Omagh had it at £1.49 on Saturday for an opening day and they were queued down the Omagh-Ballygawley road.

they've done this kind of promotion before and iirc in Cookstown it wasn't worth going as you would have been queued for 1-2 hours just to save a tenner.

It's not all GO stations either. Only a selected list.
Not worth the que or the drive to one of the locations that do have the offer. It's only a decent saving if you can fill the tank and you're in the vicinity already.
Fair play to them though, no others doing any offers like this.

Would seriously question the sanity of any person who spends an hour in a queue to save £15-20, which is probably less than a tenner for most folks, once they pop in a round trip to the filling station and leave the engine running for an hour.

What about someone on minimum wage, they would work for less than £10 an hour. Sitting in a que for 30-45 mins and save £20?

This is an annuam occurrence in Go in Armagh and it causes absolute gridlock on the streets. People end up missing appointments and surrounding businesses get impacted. I don't blame the motorists if they want to sit and save a tenner, it wouldn't be for me but it's irresponsible of the business owners.

There wasn't this offer at the Go station on the Dromore Road in Omagh this afternoon (149p petrol & 169p for diesel), presumably because it's right next to a busy road where a large queue would have crippled traffic in the town.
