Daventry’s MP Chris Heaton-Harris has hailed a drop in petrol prices in the town, following a meeting with Shell executives.
Mr Heaton-Harris met representatives from the international company along with concerned residents at the end of July in London to discuss the high petrol prices in Daventry, which he said were driving consumers away.
Mr Heaton-Harris said: “They were very up front and honest with us. When my campaign started, prices were about 135.9 pence per litre. I drove round looking at the prices and I couldn’t see any logic to it at all.”
