Petrol price reaches record high - Home News - UK - The Independent

The average cost of a litre of petrol has risen to 137.44p, topping the previous all-time high of 137.43p a litre in May 2011, the AA said.

...Diesel is up to 144.67p a litre which is another new record.

AA president Edmund King said: "This new record for petrol and diesel just confirms what every family and business knows - fuel prices are hurting them badly and there seems no stopping them.

"We have asked the Chancellor to do what he can to protect the UK economy from fuel market volatility and record high prices which are stemming growth."

Of course, what really hurts is that, where it is available, "public" transport is very expensive. Thanks to decades of neglect, Britain is in a lousy place to face any problem with fuel prices.
