RAC Fuel Watch spokesman Simon Williams said: “Christmas has clearly come early for motorists with the sight of petrol being sold for under £1 a litre becoming commonplace at all four major supermarket forecourts for the first time since 2009. While we predicted this would happen in the next week or so we are pleased for motorists it’s happened sooner than we said.

“Cheaper fuel at the most expensive time of year is great news for everyone, especially as many will be travelling long distances to spend festive holidays with family and friends. The supermarkets’ decision to drop to below £1 is good news for motorists everywhere as it will help to bring the average price of petrol down across the country.”
