Fuel price drop of 15p/litre at motorway services is a big boost for Brit drivers

FUEL prices will drop by 15p/litre in motorway service areas in a huge boost for Brit drivers.

Moto, the UK’s largest operator of motorway service areas (MSA), has announced it will slash prices at five of its locations in the coming months.

It made the decision after securing permission to install roadside price displays at petrol stations on eastbound and westbound lines of Leigh Delamere as well as northbound and southbound Lancaster stations.

Fuel bought there is usually about 20p/litre more expensive than the UK average.

Moto hopes that it will eventually be able to install new signs – and reduce prices – at all 47 of its MSA projections.

According to the company, the 15p drop will drag the price of the Moto to within 10p/litre of what it sells at supermarket gas stations.

CEO Ken McMeikan urged other highway operators to also reduce their pump prices.

“Today marks an important next step in improving fuel price transparency on motorways and helping car drivers money go further,” he said.

“We want to get started with signage installation and discounts at our sites as quickly as possible.

“We have worked tirelessly to show Highways that the new signage is a very affordable measure that will allow us to lower prices for motorists.

“If other highway operators are also looking to install new fuel signs and reduce prices at their locations, motorists will see fuel prices comparable to fuel prices going up and down their highways. local.”

Approval for the new screens follows a test at Moto’s Frankley site on the M5 in Birmingham last year, which resulted in more motorists stopping for gas, driving prices down.

Moto was asked to demonstrate to Highways that the signs provide useful information and do not distract the rider.

RAC fuels spokesman Simon Williams said: “Moto’s bold decision to reduce fuel costs in its service areas will forever transform highway fuel retailing. for the benefit of everyone on the road.

“For years, drivers have been confused as to why highway fuel is so expensive, and as a result, many have actively avoided buying fuel at services, or just loaded it up to the bare minimum. to destination.

“Drivers will now be able to safely hit the highway knowing they will pay a fair price.

“We strongly urge all other motorway service operators to follow Moto’s lead and offer UK drivers a better deal with their pumps.”

RAC figures show average prices in UK markets rose less than 1p/litre in January, reaching 146p for petrol and 150p for diesel on Monday.

The organization said drivers are getting a “better deal” as retailers cut their profit margins to a “more normal level”.

But it warned that “storm clouds are gathering” due to rising oil prices.
