What is RAC Fuel Watch?

Fuel Watch is the RAC's petrol and diesel price monitoring initiative. We monitor both wholesale and retail fuel prices daily, including those at the UK's supermarkets, to make sure retailers are charging drivers a fair price on the forecourt.

In times of falling wholesale prices, we use this information to call on retailers to pass on savings at the pump. This regularly leads to retailers reducing the price of petrol and diesel, helping to keep the cost of motoring down for everyone. And with over 120m litres of petrol and diesel sold each day in the UK, every penny counts.

To help you understand why you pay what you do when you fill up at the pump, we maintain a set of resources - including regular fuel price reports that explain the price variations, a live chart showing what is happening with the oil price, one of the biggest factors in deciding UK pump prices, plus tips on finding the lowest prices for petrol and diesel.

If you would like more information or have a question, please email the RAC press office.
