Drivers hit by highest fuel prices ever!April and May put drivers through the highest month-on-month increase in fuel prices this decade, with diesel rising almost 7p a litre between mid-April and mid-May. Over the same period, the average price of petrol rose 4.5p a litre.
With motorists across the UK seeking ways to reduce the painful impact of rising bills at the pumps, over 300 new members a day have been signing up to the Liftshare network.
Drivers who share their daily journey with just one other person are already saving an average of £1,000 a year in petrol costs – a figure which looks set to keep rising – and we have seen a steep increase in drivers signing up as fuel prices show no signs of coming down.
The new registrations have taken the overall membership of the Liftshare network to more than 230,000.
“The number of new members registering has increased every month this year, but May has seen a dramatic surge on previous months,” said founder Ali Clabburn. “Car-sharing has numerous advantages – financial, environmental, social – but right now it is above all those being hit most by the fuel prices who are recognising its potential value in their own daily lives.”
