Record-breaking 100 Pounds average cost to fill up a car in the UK

LONDON -- As Russia's war in Ukraine increases gasoline prices, the average cost to fill up a family car is now over 100 pounds ($125).

Experian Catalist's data showed Wednesday that the average cost of a liter at U.K. gas stations was 182.3 pence. This brings the average price of filling a family car 55-liter (12-gallon), to 100.27 Pounds.

The motoring association AA stated that the price increases have been a "huge surprise" to drivers and urged government intervention.

"Enough is enough. Edmund King, President of AA, stated that the government must immediately reduce record fuel prices that are threatening the lives and livelihoods of people on low incomes, rural areas, and businesses.

King stated that the 100-pound tank was not sustainable in light of the current cost-of-living crisis. Therefore, the underlying issues must be addressed immediately.

Russia's invasion in Ukraine raised concerns about oil and gas supplies. This led to higher energy prices and a worsening of soaring energy prices. Customers are now filling up at their pumps. People across Europe and the United States have been affected by high gasoline prices. This has prompted governments to take measures to alleviate the suffering.

In March, the British government announced a 5pence per liter fuel tax reduction to assist drivers following record pump price increases.

Many motorists believe that the tax cut has only reduced the cost to fill up their car with fuel. It is also becoming increasingly apparent that fuel retailers may not pass on the tax cuts to customers.

Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, is under pressure to do more for Britons in distress due to high fuel prices and rising energy costs.

Johnson's spokesperson said Wednesday that the rising fuel prices are "hugely concerning" and that the government wants to ensure that companies pass the tax cuts on to consumers.

He stated that it was important for the public to understand the actions of each fuel retailer and so he suggested that the company is looking at what other options they could take.
