Alicante and Valencia, home to Spain's most expensive petrol and diesel
Whilst the average price of 95 unleaded across the country is 1.3941 euros a litre, in the Valencia province this rises to 1.4059 euros and in Alicante, 1.4104 euros.
But those who live in the north of Valencia are advised to hop across the border into Castellón, the province that sells the cheapest petrol in Spain at just 1.3695 euros a litre.
For diesel A, prices shoot up even higher in these areas, with motorists paying nearly 2.6 cents a litre more in Alicante than the average for Spain, which is 1.3797 euros, compared to 1.4055 euros in the former.
Valencia is not the most expensive province for diesel, but it still costs more than the national average to fill up in the area – 1.3936 euros, nearly 1.4 cents more.
Again, Castellón, in the same autonomous region, sells some of Spain's cheapest diesel at 1.3634 euros a litre.
The Alicante Province Economic Studies Institute (INECA), which produced these figures, has decided to name and shame the towns where drivers pay the most for fuel.
A difference of as much as 9.7 cents per litre for unleaded 95 petrol can be found between towns in the province of Alicante, INECA says, with Hondón de los Frailes in the south-west being among the cheapest at 1.35 euros a litre and Callosa d'en Sarrià near the coast being the most expensive at 1.447 euros a litre.
For diesel, Hondón de los Frailes wins again with prices of just 1.339 euros a litre, whereas Pedreguer, in the north of the province, sells the most expensive diesel at 1.4426 euros a litre.
