Diesel prices in the UK rose by an average of more than 2p in a day as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues to affect global oil costs.
The fuel jumped to a record £1.76 per litre on Tuesday, up from almost £1.74 on Monday.
Petrol prices, which have also increased to record highs, rose to almost £1.65p a litre from about £1.64.
The continuing price rises come amid warnings of potential global oil supply problems.
Recent rises in the global price of oil has pushed up prices at the pumps in the UK, but there are hopes recent falls will transfer to cheaper fuel.
Simon Williams, fuel spokesman for the RAC, said drivers could save almost 4p a litre by buying their fuel at one of the big four supermarkets, where the average for petrol is 161p and 171p for diesel.
