According to the AA's fuel report in December 2012, throughout the year the cost of petrol in the UK averaged 136.40p a litre and diesel 142.48p.
Previous average pump prices across a year were:
- 2012: petrol 136.40p, diesel 142.48p
- 2011: petrol 133.65p, diesel 138.94p
- 2010: petrol 117.24p, diesel 119.60p
- 2009: petrol 100.02p, diesel 104.38p
Despite enormous price rises in the last few years, an Office of Fair Trading report into the UK's fuel market found it is 'working well'.
Pump prices are rising yet again. The wholesale cost has risen almost seven per cent since Christmas alone. Now they want answers.
