Shocked to see the rates charged here

April 27 2022

I HAVE just read your article on petrol prices in Wells and was surprised to read a different explanation to the one I was given by a Morrisons’ employee in their petrol station.

When I moved to Wells 18 months ago, I was shocked by the price difference with Wells being several pence more expensive per litre than most areas. So I asked in Morrisons’ petrol station why this was the case. I was told that Wells needed another supermarket to open a petrol station in order to drive the price down.

The companies can get away with it so they do and, as usual, the poor motorist pays the price.
