The RAC has written to Energy Secretary Claire Coutinho this week calling for “meaningful action” against fuel retailers charging too much for petrol and diesel. It comes as the margins made by retailers have risen recently to 16p per litre for diesel and 11p per litre for petrol. The margins are around 8p a litre higher than five years ago because a drop in oil prices has led to a fall in the price of fuel on the wholesale market.

UK drivers are currently paying 147.9p per litre of petrol, while people who own diesel vehicles are forking out 154p on average.

The prices quoted are for standard grade petrol (E10) and for standard grade diesel (B7). The figures are supplied by the major retailers under a voluntary scheme launched by the Competition and Markets Authority to ensure motorists are given a fair deal at the petrol pumps. Most of the major petrol retailers have signed up to the scheme and the petrol stations supplying up-to-date information account for around 60 per cent of the fuel sold in the UK. The price of fuel is often cheaper at Costco outlets, but their service is only available to members.
