The Institute of Advanced Motoring greatly welcome the move to place the price of petrol before users reach the service staions.It will give motorway users the chance to compare prices and not feel ‘held to ransom’ at hefty premium prices charged on these routes.
Using a motorway should not be seen as a penalty, and service station operators need to think long and hard about the charges they make. They should not see motorway users as a ‘cash cow.’
The IAM see fairer prices on motorway fuel as just the start – there is no justification for such eye-watering prices for food, refreshments or other such essentials.
