How globe has deflated petrol prices - in under 60 seconds

UK petrol prices have fallen to their lowest in three years, says the Automobile Association.

The AA said prices averaged 129.46p a litre in mid March, compared with a year ago when the average was 138.42p a litre.

Personal finance correspondent Simon Gompertz explains why petrol prices have reached a three-year low - with the help of an inflatable globe.
