Petrol and diesel prices: Here are the cheapest places to buy fuel in Liverpool, as prices hit record highs

Fuel prices are expected to hit £1.60 per litre as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues and the price of crude oil heads towards an all-time high.

Filling up with fuel now costs drivers an average of £1.55 per litre of petrol - a record high for UK filling stations.

Figures from data firm Experian Catalist show the price hit that peak on Sunday as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continued to have repercussions around the world.

The price of diesel is also at a record high, at an average cost of £1.61 per litre in the UK.

With the US and Europe considering a ban on Russian crude, global oil prices are closing in on record high levels of $147.50 per barrel.

Brent crude oil hit $139.13 per barrel at start of trading on Monday morning.

RAC’s fuel spokesman Simon Williams warned last week that petrol costs would hit £1.60 per litre at crude oil prices much lower than that figure.

He said: “At $120 a barrel – without any change to the exchange rate which is currently at $1.35 – we would be looking at £1.60 a litre and £88 for a full tank.”

With that in mind, LiverpoolWorld has gathered the 10 places that supply the cheapest petrol and diesel across the city, according to PetrolPrices.com.

These prices were correct at the time of writing (Monday, March 7), but be aware that they can vary depending on demand and supply.
