Fuel prices have soared over the past few decades and now cost drivers significantly more to refuel their vehicle than before. There was a time in the not too distant past where fuel cost under £1 a litre. However, fuel prices roughly cost in excess of 120p per litre, which adds when you’re filling up a car. Drivers are being warned about the massive price disparity between local petrol stations and motorway service stations as the latter can be hugely more expensive.

The figures from PetrolPrices.com found that some motorway service stations are charging motorists almost 40p per litre more for a litre of fuel.

For example, if you refuelled at the Leicester Forest East on the M1 you’d pay 167.9 pence per litre of diesel but if you chose to fuel at the nearby Sainsbury’s at Fosse Park and you’ll be charged 37p less (130.9p).

Its a similar story for petrol cars too. If you refuelled at Bridgwater services M5 Somerset you’d pay 148.9p per litre which is 29p more than the closest cheapest fuel station at Sainsburys Bridgwater where unleaded cars 119.9p per litre.

Kitty Bates, consumer spokesperson at PetrolPrices.com, said: “Our research shows that many motorway service stations are pricing their fuel well over the odds with some stations charging up to 37p per litre more than their nearest forecourt operator.
