    according to the AA these were the prices in december

    euro fuel prices

    DONT buy fuel on the autoroutes...it can be up to10% more expensive.
    pull off at major junctions and look for local fuel stations/supermarkets....usually only a mile or two away and far cheaper.

    Hi

    My daughter arrived back from france yesterday and says non autoroute prices seem to be between 1.20 to 1.40 euro.

    She paid 1.45 euro for petrol at a hypermarket, with an exchange rate of 1.07 euro to the pound fuel is not much different to UK.

    cheers Mike

    I don't know about prices on the Continent but at our local garage yesterday it was 132.9p

    The highest price I think I've seen anywhere.

    Hi Seymore....We live in northern France and at the supermarket pumps on Wednesday -Thursday of this week gone..... it was 1.24 euros per ltr :thumb:.....

    (With your exchange rate around 1.10 euros to the £1.00 making it around 1.12 euros per ltr of Diesel for you):Eeek:

    This not for motorway or roadside pumps and it is for Diesel
