The cost of petrol and diesel is continually rising in the UK with motorists now being forced to pay upwards of £2 for a liter of fuel in some places. However, owners of diesel cars have to pay much more compared to drivers who own alternatives to gasoline.
The latest RAC Fuel Watch shows that motorists across the UK will have to pay an average of 183.16 pence per liter for petrol.
