Be Wiser Insurance

New research has revealed the amount of money people in the UK are spending on petrol.

According to Halifax, the average total spent each week on fuel is at least £30, with more than half filling up more than once per week.

It added that less than £20 per week was being spent on petrol by only one-fifth of motorists.

Drivers on a low income may find that it is difficult to pay such costs in addition to expensive road tax and car insurance bills.

"This survey shows it is also important to consider how you intend to finance smaller motoring purchases such as petrol, tax and maintenance," said Adrian Bryant from Halifax Credit Card.

Meanwhile, the automobile industry is gearing up for the release of new 2008 registration plates to be placed on brand new vehicles from the beginning of March.
