Petrol prices soared to a new record high, with the average price of a litre of unleaded reaching 96.13p.
If you need a bit of assistance with conversion of litres to gallons and English money to American money:
1 U.S. gallon = 3.79 litres
1 US$ = 0.55502 UK£ (source: www.xe.com)
1 £ = 100 pence
Lets put that all together:
(96.13p/litre) x (1 £/100 p) x (1 US$/0.55502 UK£) x (3.79 litres/gal) =
Feel better now? Especially since that price in England is about 85% taxes?
