Diesel hits new record high

Diesel prices hit a new record high today after continued rises over the past few days. The new record average price of diesel is 143.96ppl.

AA Ireland launches discount fuel card

AA Ireland has launched a new discount fuel card – The AA Fuel Card – for its members which guarantees 2 cent off a litre of petrol or diesel at any of 320 Topaz service stations nationwide.   

Pricing for profit

The majority of retailers don't believe they're getting a satisfactory return for what they are offering their customers, according to a global pricing study by strategy and marketing consultants Simon-Kucher & Partners (SKP). And it's significantly knocking their profits.

Powering ahead

In forecourts, the sports and energy drink category is outperforming total soft drinks growing at 3.4% versus 2% meaning the category is worth £80.9m in forecourts alone. And as that data is from Synovate for just oil company-managed forecourts, it's probably far greater than that.

Showtime

It's now time to plan your visit to the Forecourt & Fuel Equipment Show 2012 (FFE) so you can fit as much as possible into your day. The show takes place at the Birmingham NEC later this month from March 25-27.
