In the last month as the Brent oil price in Sterling has fallen 9.5% or £3.67 per barrel, wholesale diesel fell only 1.8% with petrol, in complete contrast, rising bewilderingly by 1.6%. We are reliably told that the average independent garage should reflect oil and wholesale price changes in just 7 days. True to type, in reality this continues not to be the case. With such significant falls in oil seen since 18th August, pump prices for diesel have instead been hiked by 1.89p and petrol by 1.71p per litre.

And you can bet your last tankful that it will get passed on to the nation’s motorists and businesses soon. That means higher food prices and more inflation. You can look forward to diesel being at least 145p by the end of January.

So, Mr Osborne, if you’re reading this, you can ...

Pump prices rose by around 4.5p a litre between December 19 and the end of last week, while petrol went up by 5p. It is the steepest and fastest rise in wholesale prices over the Christmas and New Year period. Experts have warned that further rises are likely and that average diesel prices, currently nearly £1.41 a litre, could soon reach £1.45, breaking the existing record of £1.43 of May last year. Petrol and diesel are already around 15 per cent more expensive than 12 months ago. So far wholesale costs have been rising so fast that fuel retailers have not yet reacted by putting ...
