The cost of living in the UK continues to rise, now forcing drivers to pinch their pennies as the cost of fuel continues to reach record highs.

Ofgem, the government’s regulator for gas and electricity, had already confirmed that energy prices will increase by 54% (£963) on average from April.

This will affect millions of British households with the average customer set to spend a total of £1,971 per year on gas and electricity alone.

The RAC has confirmed that the average cost of a litre of petrol in the UK will set drivers back 162.44p, whilst diesel sits at 176.73p - but they are expecting these rates to fall eventually.

Why are petrol and diesel prices on the rise?

Fuel prices are rising around the UK

A variety of factors affect the price of fuel - they include: the cost of crude oil; international exchange rates and supply and demand.

But most importantly in this case, it is where you buy your petrol and diesel from.

The current hike in the price of fuel is due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

Due to concerns over the reliability of supplies after Russian troops began their invasion of Ukraine, the price of a barrel of Brent crude oil hit a 14 year high on Monday March 7, 2022 when it was trading at $139.

Experts have warned that this could rise even further in the event that the war intensifies, warning that petrol could cost £2.00 a litre very soon.

The prices are incredibly likely to skyrocket to these numbers, with the price of oil surging as a result of the United States banning Russian crude oil whilst the UK begin to phase out purchases of it.

Whenever supply is disrupted, wholesale prices skyrocket which in turn is passed on to the consumer to foot the extra cost.
