The weekend is here, and for many, it is the perfect time to hit the highway.

Nationwide, there are plenty of places to see, and things to do.

But of course, one essential thing to do before setting off on your travels is to make sure that you have a full – or full enough tank of gas.

After all, there is nothing worse than running low, and having to rely on the inflated prices at motorway service stations.

Helpfully, Newport and Gwent is home to a fair few petrol stations, and while fuel is rarely described as cheap, some places in the area sell it for a lower price than others.

What’s more, you can now keep an eye out for the best petrol prices without needing to leave the comfort of your home.

Popular website collects the latest prices from major petrol stations, and lists them all in one place.

It means that you no longer have to drive around comparing forecourt prices – spending more searching for cheap petrol than you’d ultimately end up saving.

Below, you can find the least expensive petrol prices in the area, as of Friday, September 17.

Locally, Cwmbran is the place to go for the cheapest prices, with some stations here offering petrol for 127.9p per litre.

Some stations in Cardiff are also offering lower rates.

Monmouthshire appears to have the highest prices – but given the fuel cost of traveling to areas with cheaper prices, it doesn’t seem altogether worthwhile unless it was already a journey that was planned.
