THE Easter break is in full swing, with the long weekend now just hours away.

With Good Friday and Easter Monday both Bank Holidays, the long weekend makes it one of the busiest on the roads all year long, as people make the most of their free time to visit friends and family, or to see some sights.

A little awkwardly, Bank Holidays are often used to maintain the UK’s railways, and as such, there is extra pressure again on the roads.

But, to make things just a little bit easier, we’ve taken a look at the cheapest places in Gwent to fill up your fuel tank before taking to the roads.

Unfortunately, the recent skyrocket in petrol prices doesn’t paint a pretty picture, with prices still high.

In many places, prices have fallen by a few pence per litre over the last few weeks - a small comfort if anything.

But, in some places in the area, it is possible to get better prices than others.

Generally speaking, fuel prices in Blaenau Gwent are among the least expensive, while prices are highest in Monmouthshire.

Of course, that can change, depending on which petrol station you try.

Below, you can find some of the places where prices are lowest.
