supermarket in Caxton Road hopes to launch a petrol station near
the entrance to its store.
John McGregor told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It's something that
many of our customers want and which I am regularly asked for."
cost of petrol in the Burnham area is not cheap and a petrol station
here in Highbridge is a facility we want to introduce."
formal plans have been drawn up or submitted to the council, but
we are discussing our options."
prices could tumble in the Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge area
if Asda's plans for a cut-price petrol station do go ahead.
County Councillor John Woodman gave a cautious welcome to the

full plans before commenting, particularly if the petrol station
is close to homes near the store, but I and many other motorists
would certainly welcome cheap petrol."
