Cheapest petrol or diesel in the past year or so?

How about you?

Apart from Luxembourg petrol stations all having the same low price by law, the lowest was at a Germany motorway service station on the way back from a wedding in Hungary last year. It had two petrol stations, one free-standing and 1.15/litre for diesel, the other part of a large restaurant at 0.99/litre! I thought my eyes were deceiving me as it was (a) the lowest I'd seen since petrol hit the magic 1/litre way back when in the UK, when there was the threat of motorists blockading refineries etc and (b) such drastically different pricing next to it - rival's trend to undercut if possible, but peg closely. Needless to say I "brimmed" the tank 😀

It was 99p a litre in the UK within the last year. Back up to around 1.13 a litre now though.

I recall filling up the Volvo with diesel at 97.9p a litre at Asda in High Wycombe as the oil price hit rock bottom.

It's a bit closer than Luxembourg.

Whilst posted to Germany in the early 2000s I was paying 14p a litre thanks to our tax exempt status as HM Forces. I could fill my tank for less than 9!!! Happy days!

My local garage has just put another penny on diesel now its 118.9. Its just to cash in on the Christmas rush I guess.

The garage is operated by Euro Garages who are buying up sites for fun which are just off motorway junctions. My local Asda less than a mile away is charging 112.9. No surprises where this boy buys his diesel I bet. I do chuck a bit of Millers additive in now and again tho.

Diesel was 68p and Petrol 81p in Gibraltar September this year.

As Gibraltar main currency is UK pounds it seems a bit unfair that we pay a lot more.

Think it was around 95p last year there.
