Whilst most petrol stations in the county were charging €1.44 for a litre of diesel and €1.48 for a litre petrol last night (with some nearer the border asking for €1.53 for petrol), one operator in Letterkenny was slashing back the price.
Sweeney’s EuroSpar at Ballyraine in Letterkenny is charging €1.41 for diesel and €1.46 for petrol.
The diesel price was up to 10 cents per litre less than one Bridgend petrol station last night.
The move comes after a growing number of consumer groups and politicians urged consumers to shop around for the best prices.
The average price nationally on www.pumps.ie today is 145.9 per litre for petrol and 149.9 per litre for diesel.
