Petrol Prices Depend on Where You Live

A new survey has found that petrol prices across the UK are extremely varied – like we didn’t know – but also that drivers in the most expensive areas pay about £250 more a year than the drivers in the cheapest petrol price areas, which must sting a bit for those living in the expensive parts of the country.

The Shetland Isles has the most expensive petrol prices at 145.9 pence per litre, while Grampian in Scotland is currently the cheapest at 129.7 pence per litre. You may be surprised to learn that London is one of the cheaper places to buy petrol, with the average in the capital sitting at 131.8 pence per litre. 
 
Is this variation fair, or do we have to take whatever the pumps charge us?
