Petrol less than £1.00 per litre again in Sunderland

It certainly is at the 24 hour Gulf garage in Pallion near the Royal Hospital (used to be Jet?)
The price of 1 litre when I passed was 99.9p.
OK so we are tied down right now in a lockdown and can't go anywhere unnecessarily but some businesses will benefit from this price reduction.

It's going to be the same everywhere. I noticed its taken them nearly a month to come down, the price of a barrel was crashing down weeks ago.

Not so slow when they go up, are they?

Hopefully these profiteering gits are put out of business when electric becomes the norm.

One of the benefits of a pandemic.
I am sure when this thing passes we will see a price rise once again.

The power of the Sunderland Forum.
That's possibly the cheapest petrol we will see in a long time if ever again so take advantage.
The difference with filling your tank at this price is noticeable, around 6-7 quid for me.
