Fret not now, there is this Petrol Watch Singapore which their facebook regularly updates the different pump rates and credit card discounts. Being the typical Singaporean whom is constantly looking for the best value-for-money deals, I for one, will definately be monitoring Petrol Watch Singapore. (By the way, I am in no way affliated to Petrol Watch Singapore, and neither should I be seen as trying to promote this site... But hey, I'm sure you know that already...)
