The average price of diesel across Northern Ireland has dropped very slightly, according to the latest figures from the Consumer Council.

The latest information represents the first drop in diesel prices since April 14, when the average price dropped from 172.6p to 171.6p.

According to the organisation’s weekly price checking tool, the latest average price fell to 197.2p per litre on average across the province.

While this only represents a small decrease from 197.5p on June 30, many will be hoping it is a positive sign of things to come.

Meanwhile, according to the latest figures, the average price of a litre of petrol across Northern Ireland has remained exactly the same at 189.9p per litre.

It is fair to say prices fluctuate across the country, however, with the information showing the highest average diesel price found in Banbridge, at 199.9p per litre.

Meanwhile the lowest price of diesel per litre was found in a  Londonderry forecourt, with the lowest price recorded at the pump of 184.9p per litre.
