One of the biggest fuel rises in 16 months was seen in April 2018 according to research by the RAC.
Fuel has not been as expensive as it is now since December 2016 and this is mainly due to a 12% surge in the price of oil. The average price of diesel went up by 2.94pence per litre from 123.08pence to 126.02 per, and petrol rose by 2.74pence to 123.20pence per litre.
The rise means that compared to last summer, motorists are now paying 8 pence more per litre than they were in the summer of 2017 with the average family sized vehicle now costing nearly £68 to fill a 55-litre tank.
Although we all expect the cost of fuel to rise over the long-term, it is another one of the reasons why we’re seeing a surge in the amount of drivers looking for a hybrid or electric vehicle.
Here at Short-Term Leasing, we’ve seen the number of people looking for electric and hybrid vehicles increase rapidly, with monthly costs as low as £439 + VAT the cost of running an electric or hybrid is incredibly low.
We have vehicles available from as little as 28 days or we can offer leasing contracts for 6 months should you require. We have cars that will suit a family, those looking for comfort or even those looking for a thrill we have a BMW i8.
