Ramsgate is 1.20 / li now which is the reason i own 10 jerry cans!

Eastbourne always seams reasonable, only a few pence above garage prices.

I don't think any of us mind paying a premium of a few pence per litre, it's the fact that we are often paying 25% more.

Lymington Yacht Haven - 104p and 99p above 100 litres. This is the only product or service that isn't a rip off price in Lymington, especially including the 118 per season launch pass for Bath Rd slip.

The last time there was a rapid rise in petrol prices, Lymington Yacht Haven were cheaper than forecourt garages for a while... until their next delivery!
