The http://rhuthun.blogspot.com raises an interesting point about the fact that the price of fuel in Ruthin and Denbigh is higher than it is in Mold and Wrexham. Is it because people in the countryside have less choice to shop around and, therefore, the petrol stations can charge more, or is it something else?

http://rhuthun.blogspot.com points out that locals "need to travel" so is it right that people who have to travel further should pay more for the privilege?
