Fuel Prices Explained


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 update – June 2015:

RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “The retail price of diesel has almost become a taboo subject despite 2.4bn litres being sold in May, compared to just 1.5bn litres of petrol. While there are twice as many petrol cars on the road, the increase in diesel usage shown in government statistics and the new car sales figures which show more than 50% of cars and light commercial vehicles leaving the showroom are powered by diesel, confirm that we are increasingly relying on diesel for both business and private use.

“Not only are diesel drivers now being demonised due to the increasing concerns over harmful nitrogen dioxide and particulate emissions, they are consistently having to pay a premium for their fuel. And, all this comes after years in which the taxation system has encouraged motorists to buy low carbon dioxide emitting vehicles. This has led to a big take-up of small fuel efficient diesel vehicles by motorists believing their choice of vehicle was good for the environment as well as their pocket.

RAC Fuel Watch – June 2015 edition


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.
