DRIVERS HIT BY BIGGEST PETROL PRICE RISE FOR 18 YEARS
It has today been revealed that petrol prices soared last month in a record monthly rise. Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com says:
“Petrol prices have reportedly increased every single day since 22nd April and our data shows that they have increased 1.1p in the past week alone to an eye-watering 128.7p per litre. And with the average medium-sized car (57L) now costing £73 to fill up, drivers are really feeling the pinch.
“Motorists will need to budget even more to fill up their tanks, especially if they are planning any long-distance road trips this summer.
“To soothe the sting of sky-high petrol and diesel costs it’s more important than ever that drivers shop around to find the most affordable fuel. Drivers can find the cheapest station in their local area using Confused.com’s fuel price comparison tool. Any money saved is a driver win!”
