Fuel price falls starting to be reflected at the pumps

People planning on heading out in their new and used cars for the bank holiday weekend will be relieved to hear that the price of fuel appears to be falling.

According to the latest data from the AA, the wholesale value of petrol has fallen, staving off the possibility of a four pence price-hike building up to the public holiday.

This is good news for drivers of new and used cars, who are already finding the average cost of filling the tank is £6 higher than it was last year.

In fact, one major retailer is beginning to lower its prices, which AA head of public affairs Paul Watters believes will make others follow suit.

He goes on to say that the cost of fuel is still too high for many drivers, and this is informing their decision-making when it comes to their next car.

"In our surveys, drivers are telling us that their next car must be one that is cheaper to run," Mr Watters explains.

The AA has warned that traffic volumes will be high over the bank holiday, traditionally the busiest time of the year on the nation's roads.
