The AA Fuel Price Survey is predominantly a survey of prices in the main centres of population – ie where most fuel is bought.
The listed "UK Average" excludes prices in "Scotland – remote area" since they are generally higher and distort the results.

The AA Fuel Price Survey is predominantly a survey of prices in the main centres of population – ie where most fuel is bought.
The listed "UK Average" excludes prices in "Scotland – remote area" since they are generally higher and distort the results.

The listed "UK Average" excludes prices in "Scotland - remote area" since they are generally higher and distort the results.

The listed "UK Average" excludes prices in "Scotland – remote area" since they are generally higher and distort the results.
