Meanwhile, the highest price of diesel on Thursday was 213.9p per litre, while the lowest came in at 114.9p per litre.

Will fuel prices continue to fall?

Analysts believe that the cost of petrol will continue to decrease, meaning that pump prices may come down further in the coming weeks.

AA fuel price spokesman Luke Bosdet said: "Although the fall in pump prices has slowed in recent weeks, they continue to trickle down steadily.

"This was to be expected as the end of the US summer motoring season eases the pressure on gasoline demand and therefore reduces the wholesale price of petrol in this country.”

RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: "While this is clearly good news, prices should have fallen much further than they have due to the big reduction in the cost of wholesale fuel this summer.

"The main reason this hasn't happened is that the big four supermarkets, which dominate UK fuel sales, have refused to pass on savings.

"Average margins are now 19p a litre - 12p more than the long-term average. Petrol should really be on sale for 153p a litre and diesel 175p.
