Under government pressure to make pump prices transparent, the fuel industry will have to prove in the future that UK drivers are paying a fair price for fuel, the AA said.

In the past month, the average pump price of diesel has fallen 4.99p a litre, from 144.30p in mid May to 139.31 now. But UK diesel costs at least 4p a litre more than in Europe.
