Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Petrolbusters.com, the Web site set up to provide information about where to find the cheapest fuel, has been bought by Britain's largest motoring organisation.

The site is now owned by the AA - not Alcoholics Anonymous, you fool, the Automobile Association - after it coughed up £250,000 cash for the niche site.

It seems the acquisition is all part of the AA's bid to make it the top motoring Web site in Britain.

Those behind the site maintain that the difference in some areas between the cheapest and most expensive fuel can be as high as 18p per litre.

In September petrolbusters.com became the focus point for motorists as they flooded onto the site to find out the latest information on the great British fuel crisis and where to find the oh-so-precious supplies of go-go juice. ®
