Fuel prices hit three-year high
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.
