Motorists experience further falls in fuel costs


It has been confirmed that the average price of petrol and diesel has been reduced again, signalling the lowest average for more than two and a half years, the AA has revealed.

Petrol prices have now fallen to a national average of 130.44p, down from 132.16p in October and 138.38p in September, while diesel now costs 137.78p, down from 139.12 in October. The data, which was collected by research firm Experian Catalist, is encouraging news for motorists, and experts believe a stronger Sterling is the main contributing factor.

Edmund King, president of the AA, said: "You cannot underestimate the importance of lower pump prices.

“That is why, when the independent retailers say they would get significant savings from delaying the payment of fuel tax, the AA wholeheartedly supports the move if it helps remote rural and other small petrol stations to survive.

“But in many towns where our members and other drivers complain about pump prices being 5p a litre higher than a few miles up the road, extra relief for the retailers should be reciprocated with fairer pump prices”.
