Drive down cost of petrol

THE cost of petrol has decreased marginally from 133.3c per litre to 132.4c on average, according to the AA.

This is the lowest price since April of this year, but despite this petrol is up 18.5pc on the same time last year.

The AA has advised motorists they can save money by buying fuel in units of litres, not euro. This makes it obvious where you get the best value.

Drivers should shop around and avoid using the same garage out of habit. Another thing worth doing is driving smoothly and slowly. A harsh driving style burns more fuel.

AA's director of policy Conor Faughnan said drivers should not use the air conditioning all the time. Once the air conditioning has cooled the inside of the car, you may be able to turn it down or off.
