The Labour Party recently concluded their research into the growing disparity between petrol and diesel prices.
According to this press release from Liz McManus TD, the research compiled by AA Roadwatch showed the disparity clearly, and now she was writing to the National Consumer Agency to have them follow up.
She’s apparently already gone to great lengths, unsuccessfully, to find out what’s going on:
I have raised this issue with the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources and at the Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Energy and Natural Resources but I cannot find out what is causing this disparity and what we can do to deal with it.
The National Consumer Agency have recently “successfully” taken on Aer Lingus and the estate agents – I wonder how they’ll deal with reversing the concept of “supply and demand” when it comes to petrol and diesel prices?
