Petrol prices have reached record highs this week, with the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine contributing to astronomical fuel costs.
If your car is running dangerously low on petrol, but you’re worried about the price of filling up your engine, then we have some news for you.
Confused.com now has a tool which allows those hunting for the best price for their petrol find the cheapest fuel in their area.
All you need to do is simply go to: www.confused.com/petrol-prices, and log into your account.
After choosing which fuel you’re after: you can pick from unleaded and diesel, you merely need to enter your postcode – and it shows you the five cheapest petrol prices in your area.
You can use the tool without a Confused.com account, however, it will only let you search petrol prices once a day and will only show you the cheapest petrol station in your area, and not other options near you.
This tool is sorely needed, especially as petrol prices look only set to increase.
Figures published by the government have found a litre of petrol now costs 152.95p on average, and diesel 158.56p - beating record highs that were only recorded in the UK last week.
As of 7th March, the price of a barrel of oil hit £105.80 – its highest price in 14 years.
The rise could soon see drivers paying £2 per litre of petrol at some garages, campaigners fear.
The price hike is another blow to those who are already feeling the impact of the cost of living crisis.
Earlier in 2022, Ofgem announced energy prices will rise by £693 this year.
The energy regulator made the announcement explaining that from 1st April, the average household bills will increase by 54 per cent to £1,971.
It could mean a quarter of British households are expected to face fuel poverty due to the increased cost of living. It also means the steepest ever rise in household bills for Brits.
In times where the cost of living is more expensive than ever, we need all the tips and hints we can get to find the fairest prices – and save a few pennies.
