Why do prices vary by areas?
Sometimes the variation can be quite dramatically different and therefore its always useful to have www.costoffuel.co.uk in your favourites to check where you can make quite a saving.
Fuel prices do vary from region to region and even in towns that are only a few miles apart.
Sometimes fuel can be cheaper in a more rural location than in an urban one.
Local retail dynamics also play a part in determining the cost of fuel at the pump. Local prices are very much determined by the presence of supermarkets, keen to compete on price, or an independent forecourt retailer that is determined to offer the cheapest fuel.
If local supermarkets selling fuel don’t compete strongly on price this can lead to drivers paying more.
While delivery costs tend to no longer play a major part in the overall pump price, sometimes excessive distances from fuel distribution terminals to the forecourt can have a significant effect on prices in rural locations.
It is for this reason the Government took action to help some of the country’s most rural communities where the price of fuel is deemed to be negatively affecting residents.
In 2012 it introduced a 5p rural fuel duty discount in the Inner and Outer Hebrides, the Northern Isles, and the Isles of Scilly. In March 2015 this was extended to 10 rural mainland communities
