The cheapest fuel near YOU – and how much your fuel station is making

FUEL is still costing Britain's drivers a huge amount, despite prices falling in recent weeks.

But have you ever wondered how much of the money you're spending at the pumps goes to the fuel station?

You'd assume it'd be a fortune given the prices we're paying, but it might not be quite as much as you'd think.

According to the RAC, the amount that goes to the fuel station is mere pence, with diesel proving even less profitable than petrol.

On every litre of petrol, which currently costs an average of 161.93p, the station can expect to make just 11.74p. Meanwhile a whopping 79.99p or 49% is tax.

It's worse when it comes to diesel. The average price of a litre right now is £175.89 and the fuel station takes 7.83p. 47%, or 82.27p is tax.
