just When many households are watching evey penny, there's another thing to budget for, the cost of filling up your car. Petrol prices ended last week  on a record high. That trend looks set to continue.The record price yesterday of 122.28 for unleaded petrol.That's likely to carry on increasing right through to the end of the year.And then of course we got the double-whammy coming in with the government taking yet more tax by way of the duty-escalator.

The AA is calling on the government not to increase both duty and VAT on fuel in the new year to ease the pressure on drivers.But there are other factors pushing up petrol prices.The cold weather has been affecting delivery as well as supply and demand at the pump.And also in the winter the cost of heating oil increase and that has knock-on effect at the petrol prices here.The AA is advising drivers to shop around for the cheapest prices.But the fact is if you want to drive you are going to have to pay that little bit more.

Over the last month, the price of petrol has just gone up by 73 pence a litre, while the increase in diseal has been a little more.This is largely down to the inrease in cost of crude oil that now stands at just 79 dollars a barrel forcing up the value of wholesale petrol.All these figures aren't welcomed news for motorists, many of whome have been force to cut back on journeys.' for those who have to keep on using their cars,a pain still remain for the fuel,  It's a lifeblood of the U.K. economy. The lifeblood of family and business.And yet, it's not regulated, we don't have a regulator for our fuel prices,we just have to pay for the going rate,Which is too high at the moment.

But this is only a start of a harsh winter and it looks like it's going to be a costly one for those dependant on their own vheicles to get around.
