Are we nearly there yet? Every August, families around the UK pile into the car and head out on day trips and holidays (or "staycations" as nobody calls them outside of marketing companies). As much a tradition is the complaining about how much the petrol for the journey costs.
But what's really happened with pump prices over the last decade? Small Data presents a sampling of the average cost of a litre of unleaded petrol in the UK, drawn from the Department of Energy And Climate Change's weekly petrol price dataset. The price per litre is drawn from the survey on August 1st, or the one immediately prior to August 1st, for each year.
