Brits could see the cost of a full tank of petrol drop by £10 in the next two weeks, experts have claimed.

The price of petrol has been on the decline in recent days after it reached record high levels earlier this month.

The average price for a litre of petrol currently stands at 188.76p, down from the 191.53p per litre recorded on July 3.

And as the reductions continue, the AA said the trend could see the price of a tank drop by £10.

AA fuel spokesman Luke Bosdet warned that the savings would be implemented "providing the fuel trade is prepared to pass them on.”

He added: "The problem is that, in many places, the price cuts are quite simply not happening despite more than six weeks of falling costs.

"Roads may suffer extreme heat today and tomorrow but pump prices should have cooled off much more significantly by now,” he told The Sun.

The rise in fuel prices was fuelled by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The price hike came as the country continued to battle a cost-of-living crisis following the Covid-19 pandemic.
