Survey revealed over 4c difference in petrol prices and over 5c in diesel

THERE is a 4.1 cent difference between the cheapest and the dearest in the cost of a litre of petrol and a 5.1 cent per litre variation on diesel prices at filling stations in the immediate vicinity of Killarney town, KillarneyToday.com can confirm.

A spot check at 10 premises on last Sunday afternoon – two years to the day since our last price survey – also confirmed that it pays to shop around for those intent on getting the best value for their euro when filling up on motor fuel.

Our latest on-the-spot inspection shows that the price of a litre of diesel varies between 121.8 and 126.9 – depending on where you shop – while the cheapest litre of petrol was 131.8 per litre with the dearest at 135.9.

With greater competition at the pumps in Killarney, there is clearly better value on offer for motorists prepared to shop around.

The cheapest rate for petrol (131.8) was on offer at Tecco, Deerpark and the best value price for diesel (121.8) was also Tesco Deerpark and the D-Miles product at Circle K on Park Road, next to the Conroy Hall.

The KillarneyToday.com Sunday spot check revealed that three outlets had the highest price for petrol with Foley’s Inver in Fossa, Amber at the Muckross Road-Ross Road junction and Sheahan’s Maxol on Muckross Road all charging 135.9.

The most expensive filling station for diesel on Sunday was Foley’s Inver in Fossa (126.9).

Interestingly, while the price for both petrol (133.8) and diesel (123.8) was identical at two of the town’s three Applegreen filling stations – both on Rock Road – the third Applegreen, on Muckross Road, was one cent per litre dearer for both petrol and diesel.

The consumer check prices featured here were displayed on the pumps or on the main promotional signs in the fuel station forecourts.

It is also worth noting that the price for both petrol and diesel has dropped substantially since 21 February 2019 when the highest price for a litre of petrol was 138.9 and the most expensive litre of diesel was 131.9.
