Petrol price to drivers still not falling as fast as a barrel of oil

The Guardian, 31 October 2008

The [UK] price of petrol at the pump is not falling as fast as the price of oil from peak levels over the summer, according to Guardian analysis. The average pump price is falling by about a penny every five days but still has 5.8p a litre to drop if it is to catch up with recent sharp declines in the price of oil.
