Fancy getting a deal when you fill up this weekend? Here are the cheapest places to get petrol and diesel in Darlington, County Durham and Teesside.

Petrol prices still remain high following a decrease in inflation to a record three year low of 2.3 per cent.

The RAC have most recently said the average price of a litre of petrol increased by 3p to 150.0p in April alone; including supermarkets in County Durham, such as Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons.

RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “Drivers are once again having to dig deep just to go about their daily lives.

“Our data shows petrol and diesel have now gone up 10p a litre so far this year on the back of further increases in April of 3p and 2p respectively.

“Some of this is down to the oil price and the pound-to-dollar exchange rate making wholesale petrol more expensive for retailers to buy.

“But unfortunately, it’s also very apparent that retailers are making massive margins on diesel.

“Worryingly, the CMA’s warning shot about higher retailer margins at the end of March appears to have fallen on deaf ears, meaning drivers are once again being seriously overcharged for diesel.”

The average price of unleaded fuel is currently 147.88p and for diesel, 153.58p according to the RAC - but they say these prices should fall.
