Not sure if this is still the most expensive petrol station in Ireland. Genuine picture taken at the Usher’s Island/Quay Statoil rip-off station.
Can anyone top â‚¬1.64? Oh and don’t forget the .9, I love the .9
Seems this daylight robbery has not gone unnoticed. The Business Post have all d’info in this article.
Garda and fuel card discount confirmed:
“Customers, including Garda vehicles and ambulances, who use their cards at the station, are charged at the average price of about â‚¬1.18 a litre.”
“Topaz, the company behind the Statoil and Shell brands, will consider not renewing its contract with the most expensive petrol station in the country…could not force the station to reduce its price, but could decide not to renew its contract when it expired, forcing the station to buy its fuel from another company.
“The station is located along one of the busiest routes in the country and is the first petrol station for many motorists coming off the ferry at Dublin Port. It is one of the only petrol stations in Dublin city centre.”
“Dublin businessman Hugh Farrington, who has property interests and lives in Dalkey, owns the Usher’s Quay station through his company QEC… According to Topaz, Farrington charges so much for fuel because he claims to have higher overheads because of where his station is located.”
