BREAKING: Petrol price hits a record 142.94p per litre

Petrol prices have hit a record high across the UK in what the RAC has described as a ‘truly dark day for drivers’.

The average daily price per litre hit 142.94p on Sunday in data reported on Monday morning by RAC / Experian Catalist, which is separate from the weekly average record price reported by government.

The previous record was 142.48p in April 2012, and diesel reached 146.50p a litre on Sunday – still 1.43p short of its April 2012 all-time high of 147.93p.
