    Which one in particular? Bit of a vague question lol, should say on Tesco.com if you find your local store on there.

    No they don't - from my experience.

    It's a load of bullsh!t really. A total con. There should be a time when they can put their prices up & that's it. If they shut down overnight, then they should only be able to put their prices up once they've shut down. If they're 24hours, then they should only be able to put it up at some ungodly hour.


    I've gone past our local BP (which shuts down around 11pm-ish) around midday and it's been 1 price, returned around an hour later & it's gone up 1p/2p.




    That's like going into your local Sainsburys, getting your shop & knowing exactly how much you're going to pay .......... it goes through the till & boom your £100 bill is suddenly £150.

    From my safeway days, if it was a price increase we used to change the signage earlier in the evening, but sell at the lower price. The change was processed when the station closed. Obviously price decrease was done while closed. My local fuel station used to close at midnight if they had to do a price change and re-opened with the new prices. And then the signs break and display the wrong price....but thats a different story all together.

    Prices are beginning to get to the heights of 2008 again. Ridiculous.

    Wonder how long it'll be before diesel prices spike again.
