Whilst petrol forecourt prices are not the highest they’ve been this year, they’re certainly a step up from prices in recent years.

Average UK petrol prices are 164.13p per litre and average UK diesel prices are 180.78p per litre.

Those willing to make the trip can find prices as low as 159.7p per litre from the Gulf forecourts in Mitcheldean and Newent (179.7p diesel), according to PetrolPrices.com.

The Ross-on-Wye Applegreen on the A40 south side services are charging 162.8p per litre, whilst on the opposite side of the dual carriageway the Shell forecourt is charging 163.9p.

The cheapest diesel comes in at 178.9p per litre from the Ross-on-Wye Morrisons, followed by the two Gulf garages.
