Fuel if you think it is cheaper.

The Countryside Alliance claims drivers in places like Cornwall are paying 4p a litre more for diesel than urban areas.

It is warning of a town/country divide.

This as prices are set to reach a record high later.

People in St Austell say a car is not a luxury if you live in the sticks: "The car doesn't even take twenty pounds, that'll last me three days. I use a lot of diesel and it has gone up quite a hell of a lot really, even in the last few days it's gone up again. Running my children to various activities and I child mind as well, so it does cost a lot".
