Petrol prices have continued to drop and have reached a new low for the first time in 11 month’s.
The average price has fallen to below 150p which is encouraging signs for UK residents.
In the Bournemouth area, a large number of petrol stations have seen their average price drop.
Local resident Usama Sokker spoke on the current situation saying;
“Its a good start but more needs to be done to help the communities.”
“A lot of people need to travel out to get the cheaper products and this is not helping them, the government needs to do more to help out the venerable.”

Here's a thread that explains why 👇

Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt announced in November that there would be a significant increase in fuel duty.
The original increase in price came after the end of lockdowns and since Russia began their invasion on Ukraine.
This would include a 12% increase on Petrol and diesel prices and also mean that energy and electricity bills will increase.
This could come into to play as soon as March 2023.
