– AA president Edmund King
The average UK domestic energy bill is £1,252, but the cost of fuel for the average car consuming 1,200 litres a year is over £1,500.
This week the Government said it was going to tackle high gas and electricity bills, yet lets drivers and businesses down by not reacting swiftly to runaway wholesale and pump prices.
Petrol prices have fallen but drivers are still being short-changed, according to the AA. Average petrol prices have gone down from 138.95p a litre in mid October to 135.08p now, with diesel dropping from 143.74p a litre to 141.89p.
