Filling up on the motorway costs £8 more

Filling your car with petrol or diesel costs you £8 more on the motorway than anywhere else a new survey suggests.
Filling up on the motorway costs £8 more
The RAC found it was more expensive to fill up at a motorway petrol station, with prices appearing 10p more than the UK average. 
 
As a result of these findings, RAC now wants The Petrol Retailers Association (PRA) to cut their prices or be forced to do so by government. 
 
However, The Petrol Retailers Association has claimed that the prices are justified, because of the cost of running stations at motorway services. 
 
The RAC’s, Simon Williams, said that they could see “no reason why motorway fuel should be so much more expensive” and that “in fact arguably it is much easier from a delivery point of view than it is getting fuel to urban stations.”
 
The motoring organisation found that some petrol and diesel prices reached up to 15p per litre more than the national average. 
 
The UK’s main service stations are run by Welcome Break, Moto, Roadchef and Extra, with three of them being owned by venture capitalists. 
 
Brian Madderson from The Petrol Retailers Association said: “These service areas cost a fortune to build. One, on the M5 in Gloucestershire, cost £30m”
 
The RAC claims some motorists will only fill up at motorway services if there was no other choice or they put enough in to complete their journey. 
 
RAC has suggested that prices are advertised in advance on the motorway, following the example of France. 
 
The Department of Transport said that they would consider introducing signs next year.
