A petrol station in Northern Ireland has been hailed as having the cheapest litre of unleaded fuel in the entire UK.

Top Oil in Newtownabbey was selling a litre of unleaded for 94.9p, the cheapest it has been in six years. Diesel was also 94.9p.

The family-owned business near Rathcoole was selling at the reduced rate for the weekend to celebrate the anniversary of its opening.

It has since gone up to 102.9p per litre for unleaded and 99.9p for diesel.

A staff member described trade over the weekend as "shocking".

The price cut come in the wake of a major supermarket price war on the forecourts around the country.

The average unleaded petrol price across the UK is 106.15p, while diesel costs 108.73p.

Howard Cox, of FairFuelUK told The Sun : “These are stupendously low pump prices.

“Considering wholesale prices are 94p for diesel and 98p for petrol, it’s clear these philanthropists will be making nothing at all.”
