British Gas has today announced it is to expand its energy business into the petrol retail market. It will shortly be seeking suitable sites throughout the country and aims to revolutionise the forecourt with an innovative pricing structure.
Petrol and diesel will be sold by the litre, according to E.U. regulations, but the customer will be billed by the traditional gallon. The Imperial gallon for loyalty card holders, the American gallon otherwise. The first 343 fl. oz will be charged at a comparatively high rate compared to the much cheaper subsequent fluid inches, at least for the following 23.437 quarts. However, if a firkin or more is purchased the whole will be calculate at the advertised rate per Jeroboam.
“We feel that, together with our array of vouchers and promotional offers in combination with our triple fuel deals we will be offering real choice and a uniquely special shopping experience for our customers” said a couple of people who knocked on the door at dinner time.
