According to AA data, gas prices in Britain have doubled over the past 10 years.
Since August 2002 when the average liter of unleaded was 74.8p, the numbers have increased to 135.52p this month. The Brent Crude oil prices have increased from $28 to over $113 now. As filling the gas tanks is already ‘painful’ for drivers, any further rises of the petrol costs would place them completely off the roads.
In April Britain was the 7th most expensive country when it comes to petrol costs, and the first place was taken by Norway, with the average liter of petrol was 164p, followed by Turkey, Netherlands, Italy, Greece and Denmark. When I comes to petrol costs Britain is on the second place as the most expensive diesel in the world.
