A tank of petrol is now over £100 - where's the cheapest and most expensive?
British drivers have long complained about the high price of fuelling their cars... and with good reason. It costs more than £100 to fill up their tanks, thanks to the prices shooting up by 5.5% in two months.
Unleaded cars are being hit the hardest, with the price increasing by an eye-watering 7.3% a litre, according to analysis by Santander.
So who is being ripped off the most? Well, if you're unlucky enough to live in Paisley, Durham or Hereford, you're paying 9% more for unleaded fuel than anywhere else.
In Dumfries, petrol prices are at an average 145.9 a litre, which equates to £100 per average tank. Same goes for Durham, which is bleak news indeed. However, if you live in Torquay, it'll cost you an average £95.13 for a 70-litre tank. Still expensive, but not as bad as the aforementioned places.
"With the cost of fuel expected to reach its highest level in the coming weeks, families and car commuters are likely to be the hardest hit once again," said Alan Mathewson, from Santander. "Aside from mortgage costs, households in the UK already spend more on transport than any other living cost, so further hikes may well push many family budgets over the edge. There are a number of small changes people can make to reduce these costs, such as car-pooling with colleagues, driving more economically or using public transport."
As well as Dumfries and Durham, other rip-off towns include Hereford, Crewe and Oxford. The five least expensive places (so if you live nearby, you might to get on it) to buy fuel are Torquay, Kirkcaldy, Plymouth, Bradford and Wigan.
