An Aylesbury man's trying to get cheaper petrol in Aylesbury

Councillor Mark Winn has started an online petition because neighbouring towns nearly always have cheaper fuel, he says it's because there's only one supermarket selling petrol in Aylesbury, which means no competition and therefore prices are significantly higher than in other towns where more supermarkets sell petrol.

Cllr Winn told Mix 96

"We are starting a petition as we have been contacted by residents regarding this issue. Difficult decisions need to be made to ensure the financial stability for our country, but companies like Tesco could ease the burden and live up to their mantra."

 "We are asking residents who feel the same to sign our petition either online or in person to show the strength of feeling about fuel prices in Aylesbury."

Tesco say they do not operate a national fuel pricing policy and prices locally reflect market conditions in those areas.
