Petrol prices hit record levels

Petrol prices in Oxfordshire have hit record levels, with some drivers having to pay just under £1.28 for a litre of unleaded.

Average prices around Oxford for unleaded have now gone above the national record of £1.20 per litre.

The rise is partly down to an increase in the tax on fuel, but also a rise in fuel prices.

The RAC say average prices across the UK are now higher than they were during the last peak in petrol prices in July 2008.
