PETROL price rises have hit Huddersfield motorists, says a new report.

Figures from internet-based showed motorists across West Yorkshire are paying about 1p a litre more for unleaded petrol than a month ago.

Drivers who buy diesel are also paying about half a penny per litre more for their fuel.

The survey puts the West Yorkshire average at 76.03p for unleaded and 77.17p for diesel.

Teresa Maynard, of Castle Fuel Cards, which produced the price report, said: "The latest increases will not greatly affect the weekly petrol bill - but the message for motorists in West Yorkshire is still to keep an eye on petrol prices."

The cheapest place to buy petrol in West Yorkshire is Elland - where the average price of unleaded petrol is 74.5p a litre. The most expensive is Wetherby at an average of 78.8p.

Ms Maynard said: "Motorists in West Yorkshire typically pay less than drivers in the rest of the UK for petrol. They also pay less than the rest of the country for diesel."

Figures from motoring organisation the AA put prices in the Huddersfield area marginally below the West Yorkshire average of the Fuel Cards report.

The AA quotes an average of 75.5p a litre for unleaded and 76.58p a litre for diesel in this area.

It compares with an average of 73.9p for unleaded and 72.5p for diesel three months ago.
