That's exactly 10p a litre more expensive for diesel, and 6p a litre more expensive for petrol, than on May 4th i.e. 40 days ago.

For the benefit of US readers, there's 3.785411784 of our litres to one of your gallons. At todays exchange rate of $1.96395 to the UK pound, that makes diesel here, in your money and gallon measurement:

$10.87 per gallon
