Martin Lewis ‘breaks the internet’ after sharing site that shows you how to find the cheapest petrol

Money Saving Expert CEO Martin Lewis has earned a reputation as something of a national treasure amid the cost of living crisis. He’s advised us on travel hacks, electricity tips, but his latest help comes in the form of how to cut gas costs.

In a tweet, Martin writes how we can “find the cheapest gas station nearest to you…” However, the site appears to have crashed just hours after Martin shared the link, when so many Britons have gathered to see how they can save money on petrol.

In true Martin Lewis fashion, the comments section descended into utter chaos. “I can’t explain how useful it is. Yesterday I nearly stopped for £1.97 a liter petrol. I drove a little further and got £1.81,” one wrote.

Another angry driver wrote: ‘I’m about to have a heart attack, I had it on 27th and 28th May after filling up for the last time. 169.9pa liter on 5/27/22. I just watched and it’s now 180.9p!! Up to 11p in 13 days @grantshapps you got to do something, it’ll paralyze the people. An increase of 50 pence per liter in one year is unsustainable.

And a third pointed to a pocket parody “Martin, I put £20 Diesel yesterday, Shropshire @ £187.9 ltr. This is the first I’ve put since January when it was 56p less than that , rip off prices this government needs to get all gas stations priced nationwide? And it’s going to go up even more?,” they wrote.

“People also shared their skepticism. I signed up for one of those petrol price apps…while sitting in a local Tesco store with its petrol station next door…it wasn’t correct as far where what they said was that the current price of said Tesco petrol was well below what was ‘quoted’ in real time,’ an angry motorist wrote.
