National World reported the cost of a full tank of petrol for an average family car has exceeded £100 for the first time.

The price of fuel at the pumps is dictated largely by the price of oil and this has been climbing since early 2021

It now costs on average £100.27 to fill a typical 55-litre family car, according to figures from data firm Experian Catalist.

The price of fuel at the pumps is dictated largely by the price of oil and this has been climbing since early 2021, going from around £55 per barrel in January 2021 to more than $130 per barrel in early March 2022. It is now sitting at more than $115 in late May.

After dropping dramatically in 2020, demand for oil has returned to pre-pandemic levels. However major oil producing nations are struggling to meet this demand, forcing prices up.

The war in Ukraine has also caused uncertainty and instability in global markets.
