RAC Fuel Watch

Fuel Watch is the RAC's petrol and diesel price monitoring initiative, which helps ensure retailers are charging drivers a fair price at the forecourt.

We monitor both wholesale and retail fuel prices daily, including those at the UK's supermarkets - Asda, Tesco, Sainbury's and Morrisons - and urge retailers to pass on cost savings to motorists when they can be made.
