Pump prices for petrol and diesel are near a record high


A litre of petrol sold at UK forecourts has reached its highest level since September 2012, at 140.22p on average, according to RAC data.

Drivers are paying on normal 22% more to top off their petroleum tanks than this time last year, the RAC said.

Diesel costs are likewise flooding and are currently only 4p off their April 2012 highs.

The awful news for drivers follows the impermanent terminations of numerous UK forecourts after they ran out of fuel.

However, it’s worldwide oil costs, as opposed to inventory network interruption, that the RAC believes is the fundamental driver of more exorbitant costs at the siphon. A barrel of raw petrol has multiplied in the previous year.

RAC fuel representative Simon Williams said the public authority ought to think about cutting the degree of VAT on engine fuel “to help frustrated drivers”.

Normal petrol costs are only 2p off their record high from April 2012 of 142p per liter, says the RAC.

Notwithstanding, AA representative Luke Bosdet said it will probably be diesel, presently at 143.42p a liter, that breaks its record value first.

“Except if we see a slight inversion in discount costs, we can expect in the following two or three weeks an ascent of 3-5p per liter and that would place diesel over its 2012 high,” he said.

Mr Bosdet said the worldwide flood in gas costs was likewise driving up the expense of diesel since warming oil “comes from a similar piece of the barrel” and – since it was an option for gas – had seen expanded interest.
