RAC Fuel Watch


The RAC is committed to supporting UK motorists by campaigning on the issues that matter most. Time and again we hear that the cost of motoring is the biggest cause of concern to them and that the high price of fuel is having a significant impact on their lives.

RAC Fuel Watch is a monthly, at-a-glance guide to the latest UK unleaded petrol and diesel prices - both at wholesale and at the fuel pumps. We look at the previous month's prices in depth, analysing changes through the month, and take a longer-term view of fuel prices over the last three, six and 12 months. We also give a prediction of what we think pump prices will do in the near future.

RAC Fuel Watch update – July 2015:

RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “July was a month of good news for motorists with diesel vehicles. The 5p a litre diesel saving recorded in July means the cost of filling up an average 55-litre diesel family car, such as a Ford Focus, has dropped by £3 in a month. This is particularly welcome for motorists setting out on their annual holidays who are driving long distances to destinations in the UK.

“And, if the supermarkets continue to battle over prices as they pass on further wholesale cost savings, pump prices should reduce to around an average of 111p a litre – a price last seen in January 2010. This would shave another £2 off a tank of diesel. To put this in perspective, this is even lower than the 113p average price reached in January after oil hit a near six-year low of $45 a barrel."

The relationship between the retail and wholesale lines on the graph are crucial. If the fuel market is operating transparently and retailers are passing on changes in the wholesale price quickly the lines should mirror one another, with the retail lines moving up or down approximately two weeks after any significant wholesale price movement up or down.
