Fuel prices at some petrol stations in Leeds are nudging the record prices of earlier this year.
The AA has highlighted that costs nationally are heading back towards the record of £1.42 a litre for unleaded petrol and almost £1.48 a litre for diesel being charged on average by retailers in April this year.
According to latest figures, filling stations in Leeds are now charging between 136.9 pence a litre and 140.9 for unleaded, with a range between 140.9 and 145.9 for diesel.
The increase comes as European refinery profits have risen to a five-year high, the AA added.
Petrol had fallen to a summer low of 130.81p a litre and diesel to 136.12p – both on July 1. The AA said that since then, the cost of a typical 50-litre tank refill has risen £4.45 and £6.29 for an 80-litre commercial van tank. A two-car family is seeing its monthly petrol costs rise by £18.90.
