November marked the fourth month of successive reductions in the price of petrol, according to the RAC, with a litre of unleaded falling half a pence (0.48p) to 125.93p.

The breakdown giant added that a litre of diesel fell by a similar amount from 130.27p to 129.83p. Diesel has fallen for three out of the last four months; it increased slightly in September when petrol fell, it said.
