The People - - NEWS FEATURES & -

FAM­I­LIES on a half-term car out­ing this month will pay up to 16p a litre more to fill up on mo­tor­ways.

Ser­vice sta­tions are charg­ing as much as 136.9p a litre for petrol com­pared with an av­er­age 120.11p away from the mo­tor­ways.

Petrol cost 132.9p a litre at Chieve­ley ser­vices on the M4 near New­bury, Berks, while Cher­well Val­ley ser­vices on the M40 at Bices­ter, Oxon, charged 135.9p a litre.

Wat­ford Gap ser­vices on the M1 has been charg­ing 136.9p a litre.

RAC spokesman Rod Den­nis said: “It can make sense to stop at a fuel sta­tion off the mo­tor­way.

“You could be sav­ing around £9 per fill-up.”
