You may have to pay £100 to fill your car with petrol from tomorrow

The average cost of filling a typical family car with petrol could exceed £100 for the first time on Wednesday. Data firm Experian Catalist said on Tuesday that a liter of gasoline cost an average of 180.7 pence.

That was an increase of 2.2 pence from the previous day. A similar increase on Wednesday will bring the average cost of a full tank of a 55-litre family car to over £100 for the first time.

The average cost for the day is published on Thursday morning. Some petrol stations are already selling petrol at over £2 a litre, including a BP garage on the A1 near Sunderland that charges 202.9 pence.

The average diesel price is also at a record high. They hit 186.6p on Tuesday, up 1.4p from Monday.
