Buying Petrol in England
At the time of writing there is little difference in fuel prices between England and the rest of the UK. If anything England is a slightly cheaper than Northern Ireland and Wales, whilst Scotland is certainly a few pence cheaper. This could be due to the oil refinaries and North Sea Oil sources up in Scotland which keep transport costs lower. Detailed analysis of the english regions shows that there is certainly variation from county to county.
It is clear that more rural places such as Devon and Cornwall are expensive places to buy petrol, as well as the major areas that are known to have high living costs (e.g London, Cambridge etc).
