LONDON, April 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
With average petrol prices rising above 140p per litre and diesel at a record high, van drivers are being stretched to the limit with monthly running costs. Some have been trying to offset the fuel costs by saving on their insurance premiums, visiting price comparison websites such as comparethemarket.com to look for cheaper van insurance.
The average price for petrol has reached 140.2p a litre while diesel has hit a new record of 146.72p. Petrol has increased in price by nearly 8p since the beginning of the year and experts warn that the trend shows no sign of slowing.
