    I think we all know by now not to drive around with a boot full of bricks and flat tyres.

    "It's possible to drive down costs further
    The easiest way to find the cheapest forecourt in your area for petrol, diesel, LPG and more is by comparing prices at free website PetrolPrices.com.
    After registering, enter your postcode and tell it how far you're willing to travel (2, 5, 10, 15 or 20 miles) and it'll list today's cheapest petrol stations in your area for unleaded, diesel, LPG and other fuels. A quick check before you need to fill up should be enough to save you serious cash.
    According to the latest figures from Petrolprices.com, the average UK price for diesel was 118.26p/litre on Tuesday, while the cost of unleaded petrol stood at 112p/litre. "


    yup signed up there once , so much spam I gave up.


    regardless of that "average price is " , petrol is available at 3 stations near me at £1.08


    I have no intention of travelling 10-20 miles to save 0.whatever on a litre.

    Am I right in thinking that during the period of the last Labour Government, when petrol prices were sky high, the Tories were saying there should be a fuel duty equaliser, such that duty automatically goes down when prices go up, but duty goes up when prices go down. But now prices are down, they are freezing the duty anyway?
    Rather dubious electioneering I feel. And I'm Tory through and through

    My memory is foggy on this, but I'm sure I'm not going insane!

    You are quite correct but that's politics!


    Labour are currently arguing for an oil fund yet rejected this as a bad idea when they were in government.


    Political parties in opposition frequently offer "advice" to the government, usually to grab headlines and score debating points.
