Households in Leeds have been feeling the cost of living squeeze this past year with price increases on energy, groceries and fuel. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine combined with the rising inflation has made many Loiner’s strapped for cash. And few price rises have hit Leeds households as hard as the cost of diesel and petrol.

At the peak of the price of fuel, it was commonly argued that Russia and Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine was the pivotal factor behind the high cost of fuel, but this was not the case. The main reason behind the sharp increase is down to the price of crude oil, which is a resource used in the make-up of petrol and diesel.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the cost of crude oil was at an all time low as the demand for energy collapsed. However, as life slowly got back to normal and opened back up, the demand for crude oil returned and suppliers have since struggled to keep up with it.

This, partnered with the fact that crude oil is paid for using US dollars - with the British pound currency weak in comparison - this has led to making the cost of fuel rise to expensive levels.

The prices for diesel and petrol have been steady this week (January 16 to January 22) with diesel prices decreasing slightly, with the average price for fuel in the UK the week before (January 9 to January 15) at 149.9p per litre for petrol and 169.9p per litre for diesel according to petrolprices.com.
