car filling up with fuel

When you think of refueling on the motorway, what springs to mind? Is it the great service? The option to take a break (which you should, when necessary)? Or is it the cost of fuel? In recent months, motorway fuel prices have been the subject of criticism, being described as ‘exploitative’ with three main privately-owned companies (Moto, WelcomeBreak, Road Chef) monopolising the motorway service area industry, being called to review and justify their prices.

Motorway Fuel Prices

With the average cost of fuel at a motorway services coming at a staggering 137.7p per litre, compared to the UK average of 120.7p, it’s no surprise that it’s in the best interest of your fleet to avoid filling up at these places, if possible.
