Analysis of Experian Catalyst fuel data by the AA shows that pump prices continue to rise with petrol averaging 191.24 pence per litre yesterday, while diesel reached 199.01 pence per litre*.
Jack Cousens, head of roads policy for the AA, said; “Drivers are being taken for fools by retailers as the cost of fuel continues its worryingly upward trend.
“With the Prime Minister and the Chancellor talking openly about the prospect of cutting fuel duty further, drivers need hear less talk and see more action.
“An additional 10p cut in duty, which the AA called for weeks ago, will not only help ease the pressure at the pumps but keep prices in supermarket aisles down too. Until this happens, household budgets across the country will continue being squeezed.”
