Figures published on Monday by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy showed a litre of petrol cost an average of 165.5p, while diesel was 181.1p per litre.

These were the lowest prices since May 16, and coincided with a fall in wholesale costs due to a drop in oil prices.

The highest average fuel prices for the year so far were recorded on July 4, when petrol was 191.6p per litre and diesel was 199.2p per litre.

Since then, the cost of filling up a typical 55-litre family petrol car has been cut by more than £14, while diesel drivers are paying nearly £10 less for a full tank.

As of Wednesday, these were the cheapest prices recorded around Shropshire.
