Last night, I had to buy petrol at a motorway service station - Exeter on the M5 - and ordinary unleaded cost me 146.7p per liter which is 16p more than our local. I bought just enough to get me home. The only good part is that I didn't have to walk!
Is this the most expensive petrol in the UK?

I think there's one in Chelsea which is loads and loads... saw a photo of someone filling up a Veyron and the price was many hundreds....

The price here in Tenerife has gone up a lot. A litre for 95 octane here is around €1.03. Diesel is around €0.95 a litre. It's a disgrace the prices they charge today
Here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada it's $1.16.9 Cdn today.
It costs me about $25.00 to $30.00 to go to the Rockies, drive around my old haunts, and return; which isn't too bad I suppose.
58% of the petrol price (on average) is tax, in the UK.
it's worth having a look here before you set out
I have been supporting Fair Fuel UK, by signing up to their news letter, following and sharing them on Facebook and sending their template emails to my MP. It all helps keep the pressure on.
Fair Fuel UK
I paid £1.22 a litre yesterday
£1.50 / litre in Caithness, Uist and Isle of Man.
I accept that many things will be more expensive in the remote Highlands and Islands because the transport costs must be horrendous: but Exeter?
Well, you did say in the UK.
£1.30 in holyhead for unleaded
what is noticeable down here is how it varies with location:
- Christchurch £1.30
- A31 trunk road 5 miles aways £1.32
- M27 Motorway about 14 miles away £1.34
- M25 closer to London £1.40
As it all probably comes from the same depot (I know the first 3 do) and were the same OilCo one can only put it down to "Market Forces" ie: screw the poor bloddy driver for every penny you can!
£1.34 for diesil near leeds yesterday
