The matter is reserved and therefore the information requested is not held centrally by Scottish Government.

However, some figures for the UK are produced by the UK Department for Energy and Climate Change, and can be found at:


Some external organisations also produce information on fuel prices, but these are not official statistics and are not verified by Scottish Government. The AA, for example, publishes a monthly Fuel Price Report, which contains figures for countries and regions of the UK as well as for a range of European and non-European countries. The latest report (January 2011) can be found at: http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/fuel/index.html.
