Drivers ripped-off with needlessly high fuel costs
Motorists are being ripped-off at the pump yet again.
I know what you're thinking: 'What's new?', and you'd be right...but it's especially bad this time.
Last month, the RAC called on retailers to cut fuel prices by 7p-a-litre, as the price of oil averaged under $60 a barrel and the pound strengthened to around $1.29.
In essence, the only reason they wouldn't drop prices in line with the current economic situation is...all together now...TO RIP YOU OFF!
Some supermarkets did cut unleaded petrol prices by around 2p-a-litre, but the RAC claims fuel prices are - on the whole - still around 2p-a-litre too expensive.
Last month, across the country prices for petrol and diesel at the pumps fell by an average of 1.5p, the latest data shows.
According to the Daily Mail, the average price of a litre of unleaded petrol fell by 1.57p to 126.42p by the end of last month, down from 127.99p at the start of the month.
Average diesel prices were cut by 1.59p a litre in October to 130.49p, down from 132.08p at the beginning of the month. In September, diesel prices at the pumps rose slightly.
A litre of petrol is now nearly 3p-a-litre cheaper than it was at the beginning of August (129.15p), while diesel is only 1.55p cheaper.
The findings suggest fuel retailers are still failing to pass on cost savings from lower wholesale prices.
