Here are the shocking statistics that still prove the fuel supply is deliberately profiteering, and even worse during #COVID19 lockdown.
In this worrying time for all of us. wholesale petrol fell 21%, yet pump prices dropped on average just 9%. Diesel wholesale dropped 17% with filling up costs dropping by only 9%.
And its not the independent garages fault either, they are being bullied by wholesalers and the big oil companies who are charging them sky high prices to their bulk deliveries.
