New figures have shown that the average price of diesel has reached a six year low and that prices will continue to fall in the run up to Christmas.
According to RAC fuel watch data the price fell to £109.48p per litre on Monday, the lowest price its been since December 2009.
November also saw the petrol price drop with Asda’s 99.7p a litre over the Black Friday weekend. Morrisons also rewarded their customers who spent £40 in store with a 7p discount on fuel.
These new figures mean that the average cost of filling up a 55 litre family car with petrol has plunged by £7.75 compared to a year ago, while a tank of diesel is £8.95 cheaper.
Lower prices have been attributed to crude oil tumbling to $40.40, its lowest level since February 2009.
How long this will last is anyone’s guess, however with the prices so low make the most of it while you can.
