High cost of petrol defended as oil price falls
The forecourt industry has defended continued high petrol costs at a time when oil prices have fallen.
Unleaded petrol is close to its record price, even though there has been a sustained fall in the cost of oil over the past four months.
Since 8 April, the cost of Brent crude has dropped by 18% - and the price of unleaded petrol has risen by 1.8%.
