Petrol and diesel prices coming down again - RAC reaction

Following the news that retailers are again cutting petrol and diesel prices, RAC fuel spokesperson Simon Williams said:

“Drivers will be grateful that major retailers are responding to falling wholesale fuel costs by cutting the price of petrol and diesel at hundreds of forecourts. We felt the price cut last week didn’t go far enough, and today’s news goes some way towards charging drivers a fairer price when they fill up. It’s particularly significant that diesel will now start to be priced much closer to petrol, which reflects the near-identical prices between the two fuels on the wholesale market.

“Given fuel prices have been climbing steadily since February, it is important that on those occasions when wholesale prices fall significantly that this is quickly reflected at the pumps – even if that is for a relatively brief period.”
