PETROL prices are set to rise by 5p a litre over the next month, the AA have warned today.

The average price at the pumps is now 103.88p a litre after it fell to 102.28 a litre in the last weekend of July.

The AA said that another 2p to 3p rise is in the pipeline from recent wholesale price increases, and a Government 2.3p fuel duty and VAT increase is due on September 1.

It said that, taken together, this would result in a likely 5p-a-litre increase which would add more than �10 to the monthly petrol costs for a family with two cars.
