Diesel £1.55
Petrol £ 1.31

In all GO stations from 7am - 7pm today.
Is this just a promotional thing or is this sign of future price. Places around newry yesterday sitting at 172p for diesel while in kilkeel its still 184

See that. Just shows how much they’re ripping us off the rest of the year!!

Tbf to the GO Stations they're the cheapest about in my area.. Stations charging 10p more than them a litre for diesel past 8/9 months

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.

Your complaining about the prices of a Fuel station that you drove past. People are smart. they will buy fuel where it is the cheapest.

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.

Just drove past a garage doing Diesel for £1.49 & Petrol 1.34.

Cheapest in a long time.
