FAIRFUELUK is calling for petrol and diesel prices to be clearly explained to motorists or officially investigated.
Pricing analysis over the last six months shows that oil has fallen by over 16 per cent yet the price of unleaded petrol has risen by over nine per cent.
In the same period some petrol retailer profit margins have climbed to nearly 15 per cent on unleaded and over 21 per cent on diesel.
Quentin Willson, campaigner for FairFuelUK, says: “How can oil prices fall yet petrol prices go up? It doesn’t make any sense at all. Why won’t the fuel industry clearly explain these confusing discrepancies? 40 million drivers have a right to know.”
