FUEL prices remains a prominent concern across the UK as people search for the cheapest costs in their area. 

Russia's invasion of Ukraine from the start of the year and the aftermath of the pandemic saw UK fuel prices soar up to alarming figures due to issues with oil supply. 

Prices dramatically increased with drivers fearing a further rise amidst a cost of living crisis. 

Fuel prices have seen a dip in recent months compared to record-high figures earlier in the year, however, this had led to a considerable gap between petrol and diesel prices.
