Petrol prices in Suffolk towns this week, including Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket, Newmarket, Lowestoft, Haverhill, Ipswich, Felixstowe, Woodbridge and more





This week, the average price of unleaded at the pumps nationally is 149.54p and diesel is 157.64p – but are we paying more or less than the average in Suffolk?

SuffolkNews conducted a survey on Wednesday – using data from petrolprices.com – to see what drivers in the county are paying at the pumps. The results might surprise you.

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 station in Suffolk).
