SPAIN’S priciest petrol station is found in Almeria, according to a countrywide study.
The Balearic and Canary islands are home to the lowest prices-per-litre – due to different taxes – as well as in the North African enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla.
The cheapest place to fill up in mainland Spain is Huesca province in the Pyrenees, at €1.184 a litre for 95-unleaded, the most commonly-used petrol.
On the Costa del Sol the cheapest refill is available at Ballenoil in Estepona, Coloso in Torremolinos or M3 Petroleos in Benalmadena – all at €1.299 a litre.
In neighbouring Almeria province in Roquetas de Mar, the country’s most expensive petrol station is found – at the cost of €1.535 a litre.
By comparison, the Costa del Sol’s most expensive petrol is €1.457 a litre at the El Torcal service station in Antequera.
