Recent falls in fuels prices means they are at a 3 year low bringing a sense of relief to drivers
Current the average price for unleaded petrol is 129.75p and diesel 137.12p. The last time petrol was below 130.00p per litre was February 2011 – 3 years ago. Diesel was last below 137.20p a litre in July 2012.
The chief of The AA, Edmund King said the price was still too much. “It’s been a long time coming. Sadly, 130p may still not be enough to help poorer motorists” he said.
Howard Cox, of FairFuel UK, said: “We have to continue the fight. The price of fuel is still high, as the Government takes 60 per cent in tax.”
