The Department does not monitor the pricing of fuel at Motorway Service Areas or on Trunk Roads.

However, the Department does monitor areas of concern raised by road users in order to make improvements and Highways England are monitoring the price of fuel solely for evaluating the impact of the motorway fuel price signs trial.
