Fuel prices at pumps across Hull and East Yorkshire hit record highs

Motorists in Hull and East Yorkshire are seeing their purse strings squeezed even more by petrol price rises. Prices had already reached record highs before Russia's invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, but the conflict has sparked concerns about future oil shortages in some European countries, in turn impacting on the prices consumers pay in the UK. On average, motorists are now paying more than 150p a litre to fill up their vehicle.

In Yorkshire and Humber during the month of February the average pump price rose by 4.45p across the month, from 145.92p per litre on February 1 to 150.37p per litre on February 28. RAC fuel spokesman Simon Williams said in reaction to the February figures compiled by RAC Fuelwatch: “February was undoubtedly a shocking month for drivers. “A rise of 4.5p in any month is bad enough but when it takes pump prices to record levels, it’s bound to hurt households across the UK. “Motorists are having to endure successive months of rising prices and, sadly, it doesn’t look as though February will be the last. “While prices were rising due to oil production not being able to keep up with demand as life becomes more normal again, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine caused the barrel price to shoot past the $100 a barrel mark for the first time in nearly eight years making wholesale fuel far more expensive.” The RAC is calling on the government to make a temporary emergency cut to the rate of VAT on fuel to provide financial relief to drivers.
