I have discussed this matter with Esso, and others, and the assurances which they originally gave have been honoured. It is true that the price being charged for supplies to some smaller outlets is different but this is to be expected and the supply has been maintained. It is better that that continues rather than that the Government should institute a form of pricing which might lead to the closing down of smaller stations with low throughput.
