MOTORISTS in Suffolk are reeling after petrol prices hit the £1 per litre barrier at a number of forecourts in the county.

Petrol and diesel prices at many forecourts in Suffolk are higher than the national average of 98.98p per litre for unleaded and 101.87 per litre for diesel.

The most recent figures from the independent road safety organisation, IAM Motoring Trust, showed that East Anglia has the highest price per litre for Diesel in the UK and is the joint second highest for unleaded petrol.

Ray Holloway, Director of the RMI Petrol Retailers' Association, said that prices in rural areas such as East Anglia are higher than the national average because there are less forecourts than in urban areas.
