    I am amused by this thread, if the price of fuel in the UK was being discussed it would be "Rip Off Britain" but as it's France we politely blame their government!

    Those ageing BBC newscasters/presenters have a lot to answer for :)

    Hi Matamoros - whereabouts in La Baule are you? and how long are you staying there?

    The reason I ask is that we depart for St Malo on Saturday for a 6 week "early summer" tour of France and (according to current plans - which do change from time to time) we will be at Camping La Falaise in La Turballe for a few days towards the end of June! :)

    We are between La Baule and St. Andre des Eaux, we will be here until around the 10th July, La Falaise looks a lovely site although we have never stayed on it we visit La Turballe regularly.PM me when you are anywhere near, we regularly have excursions in the camper for one or two nights, there are some lovely aires in the area.

    Basically correct. Prices of all carburants increased be 10 centimes / litre on 1 January 2018. This was to pay for increased government expenditure (and reduce my income tax to virtually Nil) It is now cheaper to fill up in the UK before touring around in France. Still cheaper in countries surrounding France, I suspect.

    The BP station off the end of the A20 in Dover is as cheap as anywhere. We fill there before getting on the ferry now, we used to fill at Grande-Synthe in Dunkirk, not worth the bother now.

    crude oil prices and hence the price of refined fuels are controlled by the crude oil producers who raise and lower prices as demand rises and falls. .. little to do with refiners or governments ..

    Morrisons in Gibraltar - when I was there in March I think diesel was less than one euro per litre - anyone know what it is today?
