Fuel prices sign, Belfast (6 January 2017)
See J3373 : Fuel prices sign, Belfast (26 November 2016). An increase of 4p per litre since the last photograph. A RAC press release dated 5 January 2017 contained the news that NI was the cheapest pace in the UK for fuel during December 2016 “By the end of December Northern Ireland was the cheapest place to buy petrol, with the average price of a litre of unleaded selling for 115.58p, but it also saw the smallest increase in price through the month at 1.9p a litre. The South East remained the most expensive region for both petrol and diesel, with the average litre of unleaded costing 117.84p, and diesel 120.28p, but Scotland saw the biggest jump in the petrol price at 3.75p a litre. Northern Ireland also had the cheapest diesel at 117.88p per litre and the smallest increase in the diesel price at 2.71p a litre.”.
