Fuel Prices See Brits Cancel Bank Holiday Plans

Published: 8/23/2010

According to information coming from AA Insurance the usual Bank Holiday trips out are going to be curtailed somewhat this year due to the high cost of fuel.

A poll was carried out by AA Insurance from which it showed that 56 percent of drivers said they would not be heading out over the Bank Holiday weekend, with just under a quarter of those quoting petrol costs as the main reason. Compared with this time last year a litre of unleaded has gone up from 95.4 to 114.3 pence.

An AA Insurance representative commented that it was quite clear how people in the UK are feeling the squeeze and so are cutting down on car journeys, especially noticeable during a Bank Holiday weekend such as this.
