The AA have attacked the fuel industry over plans to increase petrol prices by up to 4 pence a litre, due to increases in wholesale prices.
The AA said the industry failed to pass on a 2p fall in diesel wholesale costs in November and December last year. Edmund King, the AA's president said:
Another new year, another new round of pump price rises after the industry failed to pass on fully wholesale price savings.
