Fuel prices hit three-year high

The Herald - - NEWS -

FUEL prices have reached a three-and-a-half-year high, new fig­ures show.

Av­er­age fore­courts prices stand at £1.24 per litre for petrol and £1.28 per litre for diesel, Gov­ern­ment data re­veals – the high­est amounts since Novem­ber 2014.

In the past four weeks alone, the cost of petrol and diesel has risen by around four pence per litre.

The AA claimed an “as­ton­ish­ing gap” of five pence per litre has opened up be­tween the petrol prices charged by su­per­mar­kets and oil com­pany fill­ing sta­tions, which are more ex­pen­sive.
