RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams added to Mr Bosdet’s claims: “With oil falling by 10 a barrel yesterday, causing wholesale petrol and diesel prices to fall further, there are now even more pressure on supermarkets to act and treat drivers fairly.”

“We can guarantee that retailers will rush to buy new stock today at these low prices, but they will no doubt remain reluctant to cut their retail prices.

“If we don’t see a significant cut in supermarkets in the next few days, it will be nothing short of outrageous.
