Filling up the average family car is now around £5 more expensive than it was in February, following the third consecutive month of fuel price rises.
According to RAC Fuel Watch data for May, the average forecourt price of unleaded petrol is now 110.59p (up 1.92p a litre), while diesel saw an even greater increase, going up by 2.2p a litre from 108.49p to 110.70p.
Average supermarket prices of petrol and diesel increased by 2% to 107.93p a litre (petrol) and 107.59p (diesel).
Since the end of February the cost of a tank of petrol in a 55-litre family car has risen by £4.77 from £56.05 to £60.82.
“The sub-£1 litre is now sadly starting to seem like a distant memory,” said the RAC’s Simon Williams.
