The 15 cheapest petrol stations in Cheshire right now as fuel prices reach all-time high

The average price of petrol in the UK reached an all-time high over the weekend but there are still fuel stations in Cheshire where petrol is available much cheaper.

The cheapest places to buy petrol in Cheshire are mainly based in Northwich, Crewe and Chester, according the fuel comparison website ‘Petrol Prices’.

Whilst petrol prices are at an all-time high, diesel prices reached 146.5p a litre on Sunday, which falls short of 147.93p.

The rise in oil prices have soared since the beginning of the year and have primarily been blamed for the increase in the price of fuel.

AA fuel price spokesman Luke Bosdet said: “Whether it’s down to oil producers, market speculators, Treasury taxes or struggling retailers trying to balance their margins, record pump prices must be saying to drivers with the means that it is time to make the switch to electric.

“As for poorer motorists, many of them now facing daily charges to drive in cities, there is no escape. It’s a return to cutting back on other consumer spending, perhaps even heating or food, to keep the car that gets them to work on the road.”

According to the AA, a 20-mile round trip today would cost around 25p for the driver of a small electric car with a cheap energy supplier. but for someone driving a small petrol car the same journey would cost 10 times more.

Simon Williams, RAC fuel spokesman, said: “This is truly a dark day for drivers, and one which we hoped we wouldn’t see again after the high prices of April 2012,”

“This will hurt many household budgets and no doubt have knock-on implications for the wider economy.

“The big question now is: where will it stop and what price will petrol hit? If oil gets to 100 dollars a barrel, we could very easily see the average price climb to 150p a litre.”
