Fuel prices hit six-month high
Petrol prices have reached a six-month high with many motorists cutting back on car use, according to the AA.
And the extension of the districts in which drivers get a special rural area fuel rebate has failed to kickstart sales at the pumps in some places, the motoring organisation added.
The average price of petrol nationwide is now 117.19p a litre - up from 116.42p a month ago and above 117p for the first time since mid-December 2014.
