THE cost of petrol and diesel has continued to rocket over the last month.

With fuel stations across Salisbury now charging nearly £2 a litre, motorists are feeling the pinch to their pockets more than ever.

According to fuel comparison site Petrol Prices, High Post Filling Station in Amesbury is currently charging 191.9p per litre for unleaded petrol, with superleaded petrol surpassing £2 a litre.

Last week Simon Williams, RAC fuel spokesperson, said: “We’re hopeful that the scale of the recent increases is at last slowing and we’d expect the largest retailers who buy fuel most frequently to stop the pump price rot."

Mr Williams added these retailers should even look at reducing prices soon to "reflect the fact they’ve been benefiting from lower wholesale costs over the last week".
