Here's another great way to save money on filling up with Petrol. Get the Santander 1,2,3 credit card.

Winter Driving

Britain is covered in a beautiful layer of snow, but this can make driving on our roads extremely treacherous. In these conditions you should only travel by car if it is absolutely necessary, and take precautions.
 - Slow down! Your stopping distances will be drastically increased, even if the roads are clear of snow and ice. This is because your tyres do not work as well when they are cold. And of course, if you are driving slowly you will have more time to react, and do less damage if you do spin off the road!

Post Christmas petrol

Petrol prices have been fairly stable for the last few months, with unleaded generally between 130p and 135p. What will 2012 bring us I wonder? With Iran threatening to blockade a key oil route and all change in North Korea its possible that political events will pull petrol prices even higher. However if you ignore the politics then there is reason to be cheerful, the UK government seems to be avoiding putting up fuel duty, and the BP deep sea disaster is becoming a bit of a distant memory, with companies starting to drill again off the east coast of america.
