Glenfield is this week’s cheapest place to fill up with petrol this weekend. Prices are remaining steady, but some concerns are still about due to the ongoing cost of living crisis.

The latest data from petrol suppliers and the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) shows that as of Friday, June 28, the Morrisons garage in Glenfield’s Station Road is cheapest of all. It is currently charging customers 140.7p per litre at the pumps.

That is 2p per litre cheaper than last week’s cheapest pumps - the Sainsbury’s in Market Harborough’s St Mary’s Close. The CMA data reveals its price of 140.9p per litre is unchanged this week, with the station now dethroned from the top of the cheapest fuel table.

On average, the latest data shows that UK drivers are paying 144.5p per litre for petrol this week. In Leicestershire, the average is 0.4p per litre fewer, so it pays to be in the county this week.

Here are the cheapest places to top your car with petrol in Leicestershire this weekend:

  • 140.7p - Morrisons, Station Road, Glenfield

  • 140.9p - Sainsbury's, St. Mary's Place, Market Harborough

  • 141.8p - Applegreen, Humberstone Road, Leicester

  • 141.9p - Jet, Flyover, Leicester

  • 142.9p - Esso, Money Hill, Ashby

  • 142.9p - Esso, Market Street, Lutterworth

  • 142.9p - Esso, Station Road, Market Bosworth

There is no change at the top of the most expensive petrol station in Leicestershire table. The CMA data confirms that the BP station at the Donington Service Area for Junction 23a of the M1 in Castle Donington is still the most expensive, charging people 168.9p per litre - that means it would cost a total of £92.90 to fill up an average family car at this forecourt.

Meanwhile, diesel drivers should head to the Sainsbury’s in Market Harborough for the least expensive time at the pumps. Here, a litre of standard diesel costs 143.9p per litre.
