UK drivers feeling the pinch as gas costs soar

Anybody visiting a fuel station to replenish in latest months will probably have been struck by how quickly they’ll spend £20, £30 and even £50 – and such perceptions are borne out by statistics compiled by the RAC Basis.

On June 23, 2021, the price of unleaded petrol was 131.3 pence per litre, whereas diesel was barely costlier, at 133.6 pence per litre.

On June 24, 2022, the costs have been 190.2 pence, and 198.5 pence respectively – in different phrases, an increase of just about 31 % for petrol and 31.5 % for diesel.

Since June 26, 2020, the price of petrol – which then stood at 109.5 pence per litre and diesel (113.9 pence per litre) are each up by greater than 42 %.
