PETROL prices across the UK including Cumbria are continuing to rise to ever higher rates; this week saw prices jumping by more than 1p per litre in a day.

According to data firm Experian, the average price of a litre of petrol across UK forecourts last Tuesday was 186.6p. Meanwhile, the average price of diesel hit a high of 192.5p per litre.

This week's figures are expected to climb to nearly £2 a litre.

RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said: “New records in the average price of petrol have been set every day for the last month with a litre rising 21p, which has added more than £11 to a tank.

"RAC analysis of the cost of wholesale diesel shows it appears to be heading inexorably towards a previously unthinkable average of £2 a litre."

“Drivers appear to be up against the wall when it comes to high fuel prices, especially as the pound has lost so much ground on the dollar in the last week, which is bad news as fuel is traded in dollars."

"We hope the Government will now accept that it is the dramatic rise in wholesale prices that has led to forecourt misery for millions and act to ease their financial pain.”
