Petrol Prices touch £1.30 Per litre and Diesel works towards £1.50

Posted in Wheels-Near-U-UK by Wheels Near U Team on the July 5th, 2008

The petrol pumps are cause for concern again this week as prices don’t show much sign of slowing.  As of thursday 3rd July we are looking at prices almost £1.50 per litre of diesel and a single percentage point of £1.30 for petrol (figures from petrolprices.com.)

In the price war to keep petrol customers buying there are several loosers, but you won’t find any big companies on the list. Rural filling stations are hit hard when local supermarkets offer reduced prices to draw the masses, drivers of diesel cars who would have historically benifited from lower costs are seeing increases beyond everyones expectations and haulage and transport companies are suffering increased running costs.

What do you think will happen in the next 6 months? Petrol prices don’t show much sign of slowing, but ultimately any more substancial rises will take some drivers off the road due to costs beyond their means! let us know what you think!
