Diesel £1.55
Petrol £ 1.31

In all GO stations from 7am - 7pm today.

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.

always be wary of places that are a brave bit cheaper than the norm, some of the diesel knocking about wouldn’t be of the greatest quality.

Firmus reducing their gas prices by 17% in Belfast and 20% in the ten towns area.
