THE continuing increase in fuel prices shows little sign of abating

Prices are bordering £2 per litre in some areas, despite the wholesale cost of petrol being around 5p per litre cheaper than early June peaks. The wholesale cost of diesel has stabilised in recent days.

AA president Edmund King said:

“Pump prices are now more like ‘pump fiction’ as they don’t reflect the general downward trends, we have been seeing in wholesale prices.

“This is now an urgent situation.”

But average pump prices of the fuel reached a record 199.1p per litre on Saturday, falling slightly to 199.0p per litre on Monday.

A 5p per litre reduction in fuel duty implemented by the Treasury in March has not stopped pump prices from soaring.

Rishi Sunak has been urged by Conservative MPs to go further than the current 5p per litre reduction.
