Motorists are being told to buy fuel “sooner than later” as falling prices has ended after 10-weeks.

The AA said that on 24 April the average price of petrol fell from 150.1p to 144.5p at the end of last week and diesel dropped from 158.3p to 149.6p on Thursday.

AA fuel price spokesman Luke Bosdet said, “The question is whether, after a significant fall in the UK’s average petrol price in June, the price will repeat last year’s sharp rise going further into the summer.

“It would be a blow for the impending summer getaway if the cost of road travel took off again.

“For now, filling up sooner rather then later will take advantage of current lower prices.”

RAC head of policy Simon Williams said, “We will continue to highlight this disparity, along with the massive differences between major retailers’ high and low prices, to the new government and the Competition and Markets Authority with a view to them being addressed by the new Pumpwatch scheme when it is up and running.”
