Rising gasoline prices should be cut by 6p after a drop in wholesale costs, the RAC urges

The engine group demands a cut of six kroner in the price of a liter of petrol to “play fair with the drivers”.

Average pump prices for the fuel have increased by 3p per. liters since the beginning of the month and reached 147p – despite a recent reduction in suppliers’ wholesale costs.

The lack of passing on savings costs drivers £ 3.50 extra every time they fill a typical 55-liter family petrol car.

Diesel costs an average of 151p per. liters, which RAC believes should be down by 4p.

Simon Williams, of RAC, said: “In the last few days, the wholesale price of petrol has fallen sharply, which means that the largest retailers are in a great position to lower prices and ease the burden that drivers are feeling.”

He urged the four major supermarkets, which sell 45 percent of all fuel, to “do the right thing”.

He said they are constantly buying new items so they are able to pass on savings right away.

Meanwhile, Andrew Spence, 54, who led fuel protests in 2000, is back in action.

The haulier who has become a farmer has organized a go-slow on the A1 to Newcastle today.
