Here at Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire we were recently horrified when we were informed of the facts about increases in the prices for fuel both unleaded and diesel. The horrific true facts about increases in fuel prices are shown below.
In the UK the price of diesel has risen to more than £5.00 a gallon and the UK pump prices have reached levels that have never been seen before at this time of year.
Unleaded fuel prices have risen by 3.6p a litre from 105.1p litre to 108.7p a litre. Diesel fuel prices have also risen, by 3.8p a litre from 106.2p a litre to 110.0p a litre. This information is according to the AA, whose fuel price data is supplied by Experian Catalist in co-operation with Arval UK.
Northern Ireland has recorded the highest price for unleaded fuel at 109.4p a litre. Yorkshire and Humberside have recorded the lowest price for unleaded fuel at 107.8p a litre.
Northern Ireland also recorded the highest diesel fuel price at 110.8p a litre. The North West and Yorkshire and Humberside have the cheapest diesel at 109.1p a litre. Overseas prices for unleaded and diesel have also risen.
The UK has the tenth highest unleaded fuel price in Europe.
The UK also has the second highest diesel fuel price in Europe.
Here at Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire we are sincerely hoping that fuel prices will drop sooner rather than later.
