Costco is now the cheapest place for petrol and diesel in the West Midlands

Finding the cheapest deal on petrol and diesel has never been more important as we battle the cost of living crisis. If you rely on your car, getting the most out of every visit to the garage is crucial.

Prices soared after Russia invaded Ukraine, but then fell slightly last month following Rishi Sunak’s spring budget. In the mini-statement, he announced a 5p reduction in fuel tax.

The jury is out on whether this cut filtered down to the forecourts. But whether this is the case or not, all motorists agree that fuel prices are stabilizing or even falling slightly.
