Diesel cheaper than petrol? Find the best deals

With the news that diesel prices are falling and look set to be cheaper than petrol for the first time in a 14 years, Chad has taken a look at the current fuel prices at garages around the area.

Although many still have diesel around a penny more expensive, the supermarkets have dropped the prices to the same level.

While most recent investment in refineries UK has been for unleaded petrol production, more efficient engines mean petrol demand has been decreasing since the early 1990s, depressing prices by comparison to diesel, according to the United Kingdom Petroleum Industry Association.

Increased supply of diesel from refineries outside the UK is likely to be the reason behind this recent price flip, according to the RAC, and estimate that it could drop by a further four pence in the next fortnight.
