REVEALED: Cheapest places to buy petrol in North Devon
New figures have revealed UK petrol prices increased by an average of 4p a litre in February.
Despite Chancellor George Osborne revealing just now that the September fuel hike has been scrapped, prices have still experienced the biggest rise since January 2011 as a result of a falling pound and higher oil prices.
An AA spokesman confirmed: "In the past month alone the average UK cost of petrol has gone up from 138.32p to 139.91p a litre, culminating last week in the latest price surge, peaking at 140.03p."
In light of this the Journal can reveal the cheapest places to buy petrol in the region based on figures retrieved from petrolprices.com.
