But it’s all comparative, with driver still having to dig deeply to keep their vehicles on the road, despite Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s recent announcement of a five pence per litre cut in fuel duty for the next year.

It’s now more of a question of being penny wise with some stations cutting prices by a further 1p a litre after dropping prices last week. Other fuel stations have pegged fuel prices over the last few days. Today at Sainbsburys on Flintoff Way, Deepdale unleaded petrol is 157.9p a litre and diesel 170.9p a litre. In comparison at its Cuerden petrol station Sainsburys is charging 159.9p a litre for unleaded and a matching 170.9p a litre for diesel.

Back in October motorists thought prices were too high when they reached a new record (see photo) but those prices now seem a world away.
