petrolMOTORISTS in Spain could be in for a fuel windfall as a plan to save at the pumps is set in motion.

Run by the Spanish consumer association, OCU, it aims to give motorists a fairer deal through a loyalty card scheme.

Working on the concept of ‘collective purchasing’, the scheme is the first of its kind in Spain.

“The OCU believes that consumers are suffering as a result of fast-rising prices and that motorists are being ripped off by a lack of competition in the motor fuel sector,” a spokesman said.

“Together we can get more, and now our goal is to achieve a better price for gasoline and diesel.”
