Since I converted in June I've seen the price rise from 39ppl to 46ppl

That's over 15%

Petrol in the same period has risen from 93ppl to 100ppl

That's 7%

The govt has agreed to only increase LPG duty by 1ppl per year
At the last budget increase most outlets increased prices by 3ppl :(
LPG is a bi-product
There is a suplus of LPG in the UK/EU

In some locations I've seen LPG as high as 58ppl! :x

I'm reasonably sure that, given history petrol will drop by a few ppl in coming months, however I'm also sure that LPG won't drop back to previous levels.

So is it local suppliers/distributors choosing to get greedy, I can't think of another reason...unless someone else cares to shed some light?

Oh and I did email the LPGA but they came back with all kinds of waffle that LPG increases were actually less :lol:

At this rate the market is going to loose it's edge and conversion companies are going to fall by the wayside :(

Regards

Mark

Couldn't agree more. can't ever remember LPG dropping in price following a pet / derv reduction.
