Fuel cost not Faroe.

FED-UP Scottish motorists could become "petrol tourists" - to the remote Faroe Isles.

Drivers in the Western Isles pay a third more for a litre of fuel than residents of the Atlantic chain 260 miles away. SNP MP Angus MacNeil said: "In the Faroe Islands, the price of diesel is 94p a litre, which is 50 pence a litre cheaper than in the Western Isles.

"Petrol is also at pounds 1.10p a litre in the Faroes, compared to around pounds 1.40 in the isles.

"The way fuel prices are heading, we are going to have fuel tourism to the Faroes.

"We need real action on fuel and we need it now."
