The price of a barrel of Brent crude oil reached a 14 year high on March 7, 2022 when traders saw it spike at $139. The increase came after the United States suggested that they may stop buying Russian energy.

However, European leaders were quick to respond, rejecting the notion. There have since been calls for VAT on petrol to be axed as the prices continue to rise.

According to British automative services company RAC, the latest average fuel prices, as of August 8, 2022, are 176.88p for petrol and 187.42p for diesel.

This follows more than a month of wholesale prices dropping while fuel prices at the pumps continued to rise for much of July.

Here is a round up of some of the cheapest places to get fuel in Glasgow.

Why did the fuel prices go up?

There were many contributing factors over the sudden rise in prices in recent months. One of the main contributors to the rise in fuel prices was the uncertainty over demand outstripping supply.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine also caused major instability in the global economy, as Russia is the world’s third largest oil producer, and is responsible for around 10% of global oil sales.

The RAC’s fuel spokesman Simon Williams commented. “Having taken production down when demand fell due to the pandemic, the oil producers are now struggling to get production back up to the required levels to meet demand.”

Will fuel prices go down?

UK petrol and diesel prices are continuing to show a downward trend since June with the average price of unleaded expected to drop below 175p per litre for the first time.

The AA has reportedly said that that average pump prices are down to 188.76p a litre for petrol and 196.96p a litre for diesel, compared with record highs of 191.53p for petrol and 199.07p for diesel recorded in the first week of July.

In the past year, fuel prices have skyrocketed as increased demand for oil and the Russian invasion of Ukraine have restricted supplies and pushed up prices.

While wholesale prices have decreased over the past few weeks, energy experts fear that the prolonged crisis in Ukraine will keep prices high.
