Have your say

I would like to comment on Angel’s piece in the Spalding Guardian regarding petrol prices at Sainsbury’s in Spalding.

I wrote to Sainsbury’s in August last year about the very same subject and, in view of their response, have not bought fuel from them since.

As Spalding is, in whole, a rural area, I can only conclude that Sainsbury’s has a policy of penalising those who rely on their own transport by charging 4p a litre more than say in Grantham or King’s Lynn.

This is disappointing to say the least – and double nectar points in no way compensate for the price difference. This may be of interest to Angel.
