Fuel prices across the UK have been found to have ‘risen significantly’ in research conducted by RAC and individuals from the Competitions and Markets Authority.

The average price of petrol at UK forecourts is 146.3p, which is 5p more expensive than it should be given falling wholesale costs since the end of April.

Retailers, whose margins remain ‘persistently high’, are being accused of exploiting the focus on the General Election in order to keep their prices high.

Fuel prices across Berkshire seem to be ranging from 131.9p to 151.9p, a significant jump between the highest and the lowest price.
