Empowering drivers and boosting competition in the road fuel retail market

Person putting fuel in their car

Consultation launches on new Pumpwatch scheme that will make it easier for drivers to shop around for the cheapest fuel.

Consumers, retailers, and other organisations are being asked for views on the UK Government’s proposals for the new Pumpwatch scheme which would see all fuel stations across the country legally required to share real-time price information with an organisation to be appointed by the UK Government.

Under the new proposals, forecourts across the country will be legally required to share live information on their pump prices within 30 minutes of any change in price, which could save drivers 3p per litre on fuel by helping them find the best deal at the pump.

The consultation closes at 11:59pm on 12 March 2024.
