Walkden: Limes petrol station to lower petrol prices further


A gas station that slashed fuel prices in an effort to be the cheapest in the country to give back to customers will cut prices even further today.

Motorists lined up at the Limes service station in Walkden two weeks ago when managers cut fuel prices.

Station prices were previously 187.9 pa liter for petrol and 194.9 pa liter for diesel.

They then lowered prices to 169.9p and 185.9p for petrol and diesel respectively.

However, station managers will cut prices further today, to 159.9p for petrol and 179.9p for diesel.

Speaking on Monday, co-manager Hassan Mohammed, who lives in Astley Bridge, said: “We are lowering the price tomorrow, from 6am we will make the switch.

“We will charge 159.9 pence for petrol and 179.9 pence for diesel.

“It has made such a difference to people, I just want to support people more and in turn have them support me.

“We will continue with these prices for at least seven days and more if we can maintain it.

“It was a great project to do and the results we got were fantastic and we just hope it goes even further to help people.”

He continued, “Always for the Walkden community, not to say it’s not for anyone else, but to get back to my community.

“We got thank you cards, we got everything.”

Hassan highlighted how he manages to make money despite the low prices.

He said: ‘Within 15 days from tomorrow morning I will have lowered the price of petrol by 35p and the price of diesel by 20p.

“You have to reinvest the money out of your own pocket to hit the prices. Margins are low, but the number of customers is able to keep the business running. »
