Petrol prices at the pumps this week in towns including Bury St Edmunds, Sudbury, Stowmarket, Ipswich, Newmarket, Felixstowe, Haverhill and Lowestoft





The average price of fuel at the pumps nationally has dropped slightly this week, at 149.23p unleaded and 157.08p diesel – but are we paying more or less than the average in Suffolk?

SuffolkNews conducted a survey earlier this week, using data from petrolprices.com, to see what drivers in the county are paying at the pumps.

We found that on the whole drivers in the county are getting a better deal than the national picture – but you may have to take a detour to find the cheapest fuel (or avoid the priciest petrol stations in Suffolk).
