Motorway service stations conning Christmas drivers by charging up to 36p a litre more on fuel than local stations

DRIVEN MAD

MOTORWAY service stations are conning Christmas motorists by up to 36p a litre on fuel.

Drivers pay up to £20 more to fill a 55-litre car on the motorway than local petrol stations.

The M25 and the M20 are the priciest, charging up to 149.9p a litre for petrol and 155.9p for diesel.

The national average price is 125.3p for petrol and 129.6p for diesel.

Petrol at Birchanger Green Services on the M11 in Essex was 36p more than at a Sainsbury’s three miles away.

The government has vowed to clamp down on fuel giants’ “Wild West” motorway petrol prices.

A Department for Transport spokesman said: “Drivers should not be in a position where they risk running out of fuel because of price concerns.”
