Higher oil prices, driven by concerns about Iran are hitting drivers hard, with unleaded petrol prices hitting 140.20 pence per litre. Diesel is averaging at 146.72 pence and super unleaded is now 147.40p per litre.
The chancellor confirmed that the prices will continue to rise, with a 3p per litre fuel duty rise taking effect on 1 August.
The changes will inevitably force drivers of the road, even those that need their car for work purposes.
It’s worth shopping around though, with a difference of almost 6p per litre at different petrol stations.
