Cheapest petrol and diesel in the West Midlands as prices keep dropping

Fuel prices have continued to drop across the West Midlands, with some fuel stations reaching their cheapest prices since April.

After the price of both petrol and diesel soared to reach and even exceed £2 per litre in some places in recent months, the cost of fuel has now seen a drop with the average litre of unleaded costing 175.77 pence, and the average litre of diesel costing 186.1 pence.

The cost of filling up an average car with a 50-litre tank did exceed £100 at one point, but is now averaging around £87.

A consistent reduction in fuel prices is welcomed by drivers as the cost of living crisis worsens.

Also, with people set to get away for the summer holidays, and with more rail strikes on the way, more and more drivers are expected on the roads across the Black Country this upcoming weekend.

National Highways is advising drivers to plan their journeys, especially in the midsts of an amber heat warning that will grip most of England and parts of Wales from Thursday until Sunday.
