AA: 'High price of fuel damages business and budgets'

Paul Watters is Head of Roads Policy for the AA. He believes rural areas of Wales would welcome an extension of the existing fuel rebate scheme, but warns that it must be 'considered and explored properly, with the areas defined fairly'.

He added: "We've done it in Scotland, so therefore there's no reason why we can't do it in Wales, if the communities agree."

Here he explains to ITV News the importance of paying a fair price at the pumps, and how this might be achieved.
