Cheapest and most expensive places to buy fuel in Devon on Sunday, March 20

It will come as no surprise to you to learn that fuel prices have seen a hike recently, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Earlier this week (March 17), the average cost of petrol, according to RAC Fuel Watch, was 165.9p, while diesel moved to 176.6p. That makes for increases of 15.5pa liter for petrol and 21.8p for diesel compared to just a month ago.

There is hope that substantial drop in oil prices last week, leading to a cut in wholesale prices for retailers, will soon offer some relief to motorists. Oil prices have spiked due to concerns over the reliability of supplies amid the war in Ukraine. The price per barrel of Brent crude – which is the most commonly used way of measuring the UK’s oil price – reached 139 US dollars last Monday (March 7), which was its highest level in 14 years.

It’s a tricky time for many motorists wanting to fill up their tanks with the general cost of living already causing a financial squeeze. However, the RAC says that a decision to take a slight detour to visit a cheaper forecourt can save you a few pence per liter on fuel, which can help add up to a worthwhile amount over a year.

And in a bid to help you save as many pennies as possible, we have put together a list of some of the cheapest places you can purchase fuel across Devon by using data from price-comparison website Petrol Prices.
