I VISITED Morrison’s supermarkets in Tewksbury and Malvern on Tuesday, August 20, and could not help noticing the difference in both petrol and diesel prices.
In Tewkesbury petrol was 135.9 and diesel 139.9, yet at the Malvern site the prices were petrol 137.9 and diesel 140.9.
In previous debates in these pages the difference has been defended by Morrison’s by the statement that the price depends on local competition.
Morrison’s Tewkesbury has, as I can see, one competitor, which is located a mile away on the road to Ashchurch, which incidentally matched prices with Morrison’s.
The Malvern store has three competitors all within a similiar distance, so why is not the competitive factor working here, unless of course there is a cosy degree of collusion.
Clearly the big question for Morrison’s is why the motoring public of Malvern can’t enjoy the same prices as the citizens of Tewkesbury. I await with interest their reply.
