The average price of diesel as of June 15, was 193.30 pence per litre and the average petrol price at 187.01 pence per litre.

Some fuel stations across the country are currently charging more than £2 per litre and forecourts around Shropshire are approaching that landmark figure, with several currently at 199.9 pence per litre.

The price of filling up an average 55-litre car is now well over £100 as the cost of living crisis continues to worsen.

There have been calls for the Government to intervene again as the introduction of a fuel duty cut of 5p by Chancellor Rishi Sunak seems to have had little effect.

Forecourts across Shropshire currently vary in price with some creeping to £2 per litre, while others, mainly supermarket fuel stations, remain the cheapest.

Below are the top five cheapest and most expensive fuel stations in the region, excluding motorway service stations:
