Low­est fuel for 3 years

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE price of petrol at the pumps has fallen to its low­est since Jan­uary 2011, ac­cord­ing to the AA.

But the mo­tor­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion warned driv­ers that the road to re­cov­ery is “still a rocky and un­cer­tain one”.

The AA said the av­er­age price of petrol across the UK was 124.93p a litre – down more than 0.75p over the week­end.

Diesel is also at its low­est level since Jan­uary 2011 and now av­er­ages 129.15p a litre.

The lat­est fig­ures do not in­clude the ef­fect of three ma­jor su­per­mar­kets low­er­ing their petrol and diesel prices by up to 2p a litre from yes­ter­day.

The AA added that in mid-July 2014, the price of petrol hit a sum­mer high of 131.70p a litre.

The 6.8p-a-litre gap be­tween then and now rep­re­sents a sav­ing of £3.74 when filling a typ­i­cal 55-litre fuel tank.
