I flog the cheapest fuel in the UK to help Brits during the cost-of-living crisis… it's the least I can do | The Sun

A SELFLESS petrol station owner has told how he flogs the cheapest fuel in Britain to help those struggling during the cost-of-living-crisis.

Hassan Mohammed slashed his prices by nearly 20p per litre for his customers on Thursday.

They can now drink in unleaded for just 169.9p a litre, while diesel will be available for 185.9p – a massive drop from the previous 187.9p and 194.9p respectively.

It means motorists who flock to The Limes Service Station in Salford, Manchester, have been spared average prices of 191.2p for petrol and 199.1p for diesel.

The co-director told Manchester Evening News: “People’s disposable incomes are being affected in a major way and we know that petrol is one of the biggest costs for people.

"It’s not a gimmick, we want to help people save a bit of money."


UK’s ‘cheapest petrol station’ spotted by drivers where fuel is 164.9p a litre

Hassan was able to slash prices at the Texaco franchise after selflessly putting his own savings back into the business.

The franchise encouraged him to give the price cutting trick a go and it sparked a frenzy of cars to rush to his station.

He explained how his firm are doing all they can to sustain the generous offering for a minimum of seven days.

But fears of fluctuating prices could mean the bargain forecourt, on Manchester Road, in Walkden, may have to adjust prices a tad.

Despite this, Hassan, from Bolton, has vowed to keep it going for as long as possible.

He added: "We’ve been here for seven years now and we’ve always tried to support our community."

But Hassan has a challenger, as one Shell garage in rural Devon is now offering petrol at 164.9p a litre.

The filling station at Trago Mills department store in Newton Abbot is also selling diesel at 179.9p.


It comes as the UK's soaring fuel prices should have fallen by 4p last month, the AA has revealed.

In a blow to millions of drivers, the motoring association said greedy fuel retailers have been pocketing profits despite the nation facing a crippling cost-of-living crisis.

Luke Bosdet, the AA’s fuel price spokesman, told The Telegraph: “Even commentators in the fuel trade say that their pump prices should be falling 4p in the next few days."

Brits have already exploded in fury at rocketing prices at the pump – taking to the road to slow traffic down as they demanded a cut in fuel duty.

Fuel Price Stand Against Tax brought the nation's roads to a standstill on July 4 as protesters chugged along at just 5mph in some places – sparking 12 hour monster tailbacks.

It comes as a string of Tory leadership hopefuls have vowed to slash unpopular fuel duty if they become Prime Minister.
