Over the last 12 months, a staggering 1.3million drivers have given up driving – caused by an increase in fuel costs of almost one third! You may want to be sitting down to read this: the typical car owner is now spending over £1,700 per year to fill their car.
With motoring costs spiralling, drivers have been forced to change the way they drive – 75% of motorists have changed their behaviour, including driving more slowly.

A sharp-minded 7% have identified car-sharing as an easy and ideal alternative to battling the increasing fuel costs.
