The Only Way Is Up…

Another week, another penny rise – with the only way apparently being up.

Our photo shows just the latest 1p increase in the cost of a litre of fuel which appears to be a weekly occurrence.

It comes just days after proof that the four big supermarkets increased the cost of their fuel by more than the UK average last month.

The research by the RAC found the typical amount for unleaded at Asda, Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsbury’s went up by 5-point-58 pence per litre.

The average price for a litre in the UK on 1 April was 122.62. By 30 April it was 128.06 – a rise of 5.44p

We’ve monitored this one closely, and it just seems to continue. Anyone the wiser as why we’re putting up with it?


Last week. Spot the difference anyone?

Back in November the RAC had another dig at the petrol companies as wholesale prices were falling, but not at the pumps.

At the time, RAC Fuel Watch data showed the price of a litre should be at least 8p lower for unleaded and 6p lower for diesel.
