Is this Britain’s cheapest petrol station? Fuel prices drop below one pound

This garage could be selling the cheapest fuel in Britain- as the price of petrol dramatically drops to below £1.

Petrol prices at The Harvest forecourt in the Maypole area of Birmingham, West Mids have plummeted to below £1 – meaning savvy motorists can fill up their tanks for 99p a litre thanks to the falling price of oil.

The pumps at the Midlands garage are now in serious demand after a litre of petrol is now being sold at a staggering 99.7p.

Petrol prices haven’t been this low since May 2009.

Pumps on the Harvest forecourt ran dry three times during December after boss Velautham Sarveswaran, 52, was able to slash his prices.

And he is expecting the same with his latest price slash.

Velautham, who also runs two other petrol stations in the Midlands has grown used to seeing motorists queueing outside his forecourts, in order to fill their tanks with the cheap fuel.

Velautham said: “It is really a great feeling being able to drop our prices because we are passing on the benefits of the price cuts to the customers, which is really important.

“The customers are really happy.”

Velautham said as well as local customers the price cuts have encouraged motorist to drive from further away just to fill up at his pumps.

He said: “More people are stopping here after seeing the prices.

“I believe we are the cheapest in the country.”
