Driv­ers’ fuel price mis­ery

Daily Record - - NEWS -

PETROL prices could rocket by up to 8p a litre within weeks, mo­torists were warned yes­ter­day.

Diesel driv­ers could be even worse off, with prices up by as much as 12p a litre by De­cem­ber.

The warn­ing comes as the price of Brent crude oil has in­creased by £13 a bar­rel since the mid­dle of this year, up by about 20 per cent.

The RAC pre­dict petrol will rise by 3p a litre from its cur­rent 119p av­er­age, while diesel will go up 1p to 121p. But some ex­perts be­lieve these fore­casts are mod­est.
