Continuously Rising Fuel Costs!
The cost to fill a family car now stands at about £103 for petrol and £106 for diesel.
The war in Ukraine is being blamed by the Government and moves to reduce dependence on Russian oil have helped drive up fuel prices, putting households under pressure as other cost of living prices continue to rise!
The average petrol price is now 186.59p per litre, with diesel at 192.48p! It is said the price of the barrel is currently £ 96.00. However, in June 2008 the price of a barrel was £109.00! BUT petrol then was £1.19 per litre! Makes sense to me!
The Government have announced that they will be giving cost of living payments to UK citizens.
The first of two payments to help the poorest households with the cost of living will hit people’s bank accounts from 14 July.
More than 8,000,000 homes on benefits will receive £326 by the end of July, with a second payment of £324, hitting the accounts around the end of Autumn.
This is part of a £37 billion government package to help families as energy, food and fuel bills soar.
