Britons jumping on ferries from Portsmouth to Santander
can save the equivalent of £22 on a full tank of petrol when driving in the eurozone.
This was based on new AA figures and it is due to the effect of the appreciation of the pound in value against the troubled multinational currency.
It means petrol costs 4.2p a litre less on average in Europe and diesel is 21p a litre cheaper.
For those visiting northern Spain the benefits will be clearly felt, as the country has the lowest average petrol price in the eurozone at the equivalent of 110.6 p per litre.
The news of the fall in fuel prices in Europe contrasts with the situation in the UK.
According to the latest AA figures on the situation at home, a ten-week trend of falling prices has been reversed this month as the cost of filling up has begun creeping up again.
