    Don’t expect it to show at the forecourt.

    Down about 15c/litre in the past week here too

    Surprising. Most were tipping a continued price rise on the back of restricted supply a month back

    Very roughly speaking at $60 per barrel of crude oil the raw material cost of 1 litre of petrol is about 30p. So even another 10% drop in the price of crude oil would result in a raw material cost reduction of only about 3p per litre. About 44% of barrel is required to produce 70 litres petrol.



    Barrel = 42 US gallons = about 159 litres
