LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s average weekly fuel sales were at 87% of typical pre-lockdown week levels but the growth trend has stalled, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy said on Thursday.

Average fuel sales per filling station in the week to Aug. 16 rose by 0.1% from the previous week, according to the BEIS data.

“The upward trend since mid-April has stalled,” it said in a statement.
