FUEL PRICES AT THEIR HIGHEST SINCE 2014
The RAC have warned that fuel prices are at their highest since the summer of 2014. Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com says:
“As fuel prices have reached the highest in over five years, it’s clear there will be no respite for drivers as prices are expected only to continue increasing. According to our fuel price index, the average medium-sized car (57L) now costs £74.24 to fill up.
“Drivers will be hit in the pocket even more if the freeze on fuel duty is lifted in the next autumn budget. Paying for fuel is part and parcel of owning a car but the government could end up pricing drivers off the roads.
“To save money, motorists should concentrate on making their cars more fuel efficient by driving at lower speeds, accelerating gradually and avoiding over-revving. Drivers can also use our fuel price comparison service to find the cheapest petrol prices in their area if they’re unsure what they should be paying.”
