Petrol prices are the cheapest they’ve ever been since May 2016, according to latest government data.
The average cost of petrol at stations is £1.09 per litre, but some chains are pricing their unleaded for £1 per litre.
Figures from the Department of Transport show filling up a 55L family car is around £10 cheaper today than it was in late January.
Even diesel is a little bit cheaper too, with the lowest level since July 2017 costing an average of £1.16p per litre today.
But these numbers also show road traffic is around two-thirds lower than normal because of the coronavirus lockdown.
The Government ordered Brits to only go out for essentials like food shopping, health reasons or to commute to their jobs if work from home isn’t possible.
This massive drop in fuel prices is because of the price of oil nose diving since the start of the year.
RAC made the prediction back in January where they said the coronavirus outbreak “should cause a fall in petrol prices”.
And while these prices might be tempting to lure you in, it’s important that Brits continue to follow Government advice on staying home.
Simon Williams, an RAC fuel spokesman, told The Sun : “It’s ironic that people being restricted from driving has contributed to the oil price going into freefall as a result of supply far outstripping demand.
“While cars are vital in the coronavirus pandemic for essential journeys, the vast majority of drivers are doing very few miles so can’t benefit from these low prices which were last seen four years ago.
“We strongly urge motorists to follow the government’s instruction to ‘stay at home’ and not to be tempted to take advantage of cheaper fuel by driving more.”
